Joseph H. Worischeck, MD offers REZUM to patients experiencing urinary symptoms. Take the medication questionaire and symptom score to determine if you are a candidate for the Rezum procedure. The benefits? Getting off your medications and improved quality of life!
Rezūm is a minimally invasive alternative to BPH medications that relieves symptoms safely and effectively 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*.
Rezūm 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 body’s 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.
