Why Is Rezum Treatment Becoming More Popular?
Rezum is becoming more popular. It is a minimally invasive technique that uses steam injections through the urethra into the transitional prostatic zone to heat up and destroy tissue. Its main pros are that it is safe, has few sexual side effects, doesn’t need much anesthesia, and is cheap. Even though it works well and is popular with patients, it is only approved and used for small prostates. Rezum could be a good option for men with large prostates, but this is still a relatively unexplored area of research.
What are the benefits of Rezum treatment?
Here are some reasons you might want to treat your BPH with Rezum from places like Dynamiq Urology Group.
Possibility of discontinuing medications.
We all know that men want to stay away from anything that has to do with medicine. We don’t like going to the doctor or taking medicine. Some types of prostate drugs are alpha-blockers (like Tamsulosin or Flomax), 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (like Finasteride or Dutasteride), and PDE5 inhibitors (e.g., Cialis or Tadalafil).
Some of the side effects of these medicines could be bad for your health. Rezum Therapy is a minimally invasive method that lets you have a strong, steady flow WITHOUT having to take your prostate medicine. After your Rezum water vapor thermal therapy treatment and you feel better, your doctor will almost certainly stop giving you these drugs.
General anesthesia is not required. Rezum is a technique performed in the doctor’s office.
Rezum is NOT a surgical procedure. It is a prostate cancer treatment that doesn’t cause too much trouble in everyday life and can be done safely at the doctor’s office. So, you won’t have to stay in the hospital for a long time or go to the operating room. You don’t have to take the risks that come with general anesthesia. The most important thing is that you can leave right away after the surgery.
There’s no reason for you to stay in the hospital. With a local anesthetic and light sedation, the treatment can be done well and with little pain.
Maintains sexual function (Erections and Ejaculation).
The goal of every medical technique is to get the best results possible while avoiding negative side effects. Most treatments for an enlarged prostate, like the Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) or “Roto-Rooter,” can cause side effects. Most of the time, men with TURP give up their ability to ejaculate so their urine stream can be healthier. TURP and other surgeries on the prostate can also make it harder to get an erection.
We now have a way to help you keep urinating and having erections. Tests have shown that Rezum can clear up blocked prostate tissue without affecting sexual function. In the first clinical trial, no one had ED after four years, and ejaculation seemed to improve over time.
The procedure takes less than 5 minutes.
Most procedures that have to do with the prostate take between 30 minutes and 2 to 3 hours to do. I’ve worked with Rezum technology for a long time, and the process has never taken more than 4 minutes (even for bigger prostates). Rezum is a quick treatment that usually doesn’t take more than two minutes. It happens quickly, making it less painful and works well.
Rezum produces long-term results.
After five years, research shows that the chance of re-treatment is about the same as with TURP surgery. Remember that Rezum is a new technology that has only been available to patients for less than six years. After four years, only 4.4% of men needed another surgery to help them urinate, and 5.2% of men had to start taking their medicines again. These numbers are similar to the TURP numbers, showing that up to 14% of patients need surgery after five years.
Rezum is a great way to treat urinary issues caused by an enlarged prostate. Rezum could be the answer if you have symptoms of urinary obstruction, are tired of taking drugs, or have trouble with an enlarged prostate.
