The REZUM Therapy System offers an alternative to standard BPH management and has been supported by The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).
"I’ve put a few thoughts together regarding my experience of the procedure. I can’t fault the non clinical attention that we received upon arrival at the hospital. The gentleman who escorted me and my wife to the room, delivered a newspaper and made sure that she was comfortable during my brief excursion to theatre was a really nice touch. I can honestly say that for me a trip to the dentist is way more traumatic than my experience of the Rezum procedure. I had absolutely no pain whatsoever, was reassured at each stage and exceptionally well attended to by the nursing staff both before and post operation. I was really surprised at how quickly I seem to recover from anaesthetic, feeling fully alert as I woke and within 30 minutes or so was tucking into a very nice bacon sandwich followed by a cup of coffee. Honestly, I felt ready to leave within an hour of returning to my room, no ill effects whatsoever and in the event was discharged at around mid-day, 5 hours after admission. I understand that it will be a short while before I begin to notice any improvement and that it can take up to 6 months for the full effect to be reached but it would be difficult to believe that anything had been done at all - I can’t stress enough how unremarkable it all feels. So far at least, I’m a delighted customer. Many thanks for your help along the way."
