BPH Can Cause Frequent or Urgent Urination, Weak or Interrupted Urine Stream, and Need to Get Up and Urinate Several Times Throughout the Night; BPH Affects about 50% of Men by Age 60 and 90% by Age 85

ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. - Floridant -- Thousands of men are suffering from the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), but few are getting the actual help they need. That's because very few urologists in South Florida are offering this groundbreaking procedure that has been around for four years….and therefore very few are communicating its availability.

The Urology Center of Palm Beach is one of a few local offices to offer its patients Rezūm™ Water Vapor Therapy — a minimally invasive in-office procedure for men looking to treat their benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), not just the symptoms. Rezūm Therapy uses natural water vapor to reduce the size of the prostate and provide lasting symptom relief from BPH without invasive surgery or the potential side effects of prescription drugs.

BPH can cause frequent or urgent urination, a weak or interrupted urine stream, and the need to get up several times a night to urinate. It affects about 50% of men by age 60, and 90% of men by age 85. Common symptoms include: Frequent urination, Getting up at night to urinate, Slow urinary stream, Sensation of incomplete emptying, Urgent urination, Urinary discomfort or burning, and Starting and stopping. According to Dr. Rubinowicz, Rezum Therapy is minimally invasive; office based; completed under sedation and local anesthetic; quick; covered by insurance; has a very low retreat meant rate (4.4% in 5 years); and minimal to no effect on ejaculation or sexual function.

During Rezūm Therapy, which takes place during one short office visit, natural water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. Over time, the body's natural healing response absorbs the dead cells and shrinks the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing BPH symptoms.

Rezūm Therapy is used in many leading urology practices throughout the United States and around the world. To date, more than 55,000 patients have been successfully treated with Rezūm Therapy. The Urology Center of Palm Beach has completed the procedure on nearly 100 patients, including Dr. Xavier Garcia, who credits the procedure for changing his life. "Before receiving the Rezum procedure from Dr. Rubinowicz, I was tired from waking up numerous times during the night to relieve myself and not getting enough sleep. Then I tried medicines that left me dizzy during the day. Rezum changed my life. This simple, quick procedure – which was covered by my insurance – truly made all the difference. I wish everyone knew about it."
