Pioneer Valley Urology is now offering the Rezumtreatment for BPH.
Rezum is a minimally invasive alternative to BPH medications that relieves symptoms safely and effectively1 in an office or out-patient setting, with minimal side effects. The procedure is done during one visit, patients return to activities within a few days1 and it is considered medically necessary by Medicare and most private insurance*.
Rezum uses the natural energy stored in water vapor, or steam, to treat the extra prostate tissue that is causing the BPH symptoms. The water vapor is delivered into the targeted prostate tissue and when the vapor contacts the tissue it turns back into water, releasing all the stored energy, causing the prostate cells to die.
Over time, the bodys natural healing response removes the dead cells, shrinking the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing BPH symptoms. Most patients begin to experience symptom relief in as soon as two weeks and maximum benefit will occur within three months.
