To treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) we provide a broad spectrum ranging from oral medication to open surgery.
If patients suffer due to BPH symptoms but don’t tolerate their medication they need different therapeutic options. Especially when their symptoms are not that irritating and endoscopic surgery is not indicated. In these cases we offer gentle individual tailored alternatives.
An innovative and consistent concept is the RezumTM – Water Vapor Therapy.
This procedure evaporated the obstructing adenoma by hot steam. Accordingly the symptoms improve significantly. (s pic.)
Patients with mild symptoms as dribbling, nocturia or urinary residual volume can reduce their symptoms with RezumTM. Erection and ejaculation is not compromised.
In Brief the risk of complications is low. You don’t have to except a significant blood loss.
Erection and ejaculation is not compromised.

The risk of complication is low and RezumTM can work as an alternative to oral medication in mild symptomatic patients.
RezumTM is suitable for patients, who
If this procedure is definitely fitting for you has to be discussed with your urologist.
