Rezum is a non-invasive water vapor thermal therapy procedure to relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate. It has been shown to provide symptomatic relief in patients with a prostate size less than 80 cc, while preserving ejaculatory function and not causing erectile dysfunction (ED). Rezum is an option for those who have not had success with watchful waiting, lifestyle changes and/or prescription medications.

University Urology Associates is proud to be the first Designated Center of Excellence for Rezum in Canada. Our physicians are experienced in performing this novel therapy. The design of the device was carefully studied by Boston Scientific to ensure it is safe and effective for all patients.

The outcomes of the study demonstrating this were published in 2021 and are as follows:

The results were impressive, with a mean IPSS reduction of 45.2%, Qmax improvement of 51.4%, and PVR (prostate-vesicle ratio) reduced by 34.9%) with no ED related issues at 12 months. This was a multi-center study with a wide variety of patient demographics, not limited by prostate size or prior procedures and it replicated the LUTS outcomes seen by McVary et al in their RCT and other studies.
