Rezūm technology uses heat from radiofrequency-generated water vapour to ablate prostate tissue. The therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for an enlarged prostate that uses controlled doses of hot steam to directly evaporate and reduce portions of the swollen prostate that are causing obstruction of the urethra.
Rezūm has undergone rigorous studies and is recommended by the Canadian Urological Association as a minimally invasive BPH symptom reduction method for men interested in preserving erectile and ejaculatory function. It was also approved by the US FDA in 2015 for the treatment of the enlarged prostate.
SanoMed is the first clinic to offer Rezūm in Quebec and Eastern Canada.
