What we offer
Why we offer Rezum
As a urologist in Hamilton, Ontario I am proud to offer Rezum®.
Rezum® is a minimally invasive procedure that uses steam to shrink an enlarged prostate without the use of needles or scalpels. The procedure works by inserting sterile water vapor (steam) into the prostate gland during nine-second treatments. REZUM is done as an outpatient procedure without a general anesthetic, so you can get back in the game quickly.
No need to be in the hospital.
No need to keep taking costly BPH medications with many side-effects.
What regions we serve
We have treated patients from the Hamilton/Burlington/Oakville Area, Greater Toronto Area, Golden Horseshoe Area, Guelph/Kitchener/Waterloo Area, St. Catharines/Niagara/Welland Niagara-on-the Lake Area and Southwestern Ontario. Patients across Canada have trusted us for their REZUM procedure.
Rezum is a minimally invasive procedure that is done without a general anesthetic or spinal anesthetic. It is done as an outpatient basis. Recovery is quick with minimal pain. Rezum leads to better flow, less frequency and urgency. Unlike most benign prostatic hyperplasia operations, Rezum does not affect your ability to have erections or ejaculate. Rezum is long-lasting.
If you have bothersome symptoms, have failed medications or have side-effects from medications. Rezum may be right for you.
Most men will notice an improvement in voiding soon after the procedure. Improvements will continue for several weeks after REZUM.
Top urologists in Toronto should be trained and experienced in performing Rezum. Dynamiq Urology at Lotus Surgical Centre is a College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario Approved Centre for Rezum.
Temporary discomfort with the catheter is the most common side-effect. Burning may occur in some patients for a short period. Flow can be intermittent initially.
Studies have shown that Rezum lasts as long as standard operations such as TURPs (transurethral resection of the prostate). The need to go on medications or repeating surgery down the road is less than 4.4.% over 5 years.
Patients who are bothered by their urinary symptoms, those who have failed medical therapy or those who have side-effects (dizziness, retrograde ejaculation etc) are eligible for Rezum treatment.
Anyone that can undergo a local procedure with freezing and light IV sedation is eligible for Rezum. Those on blood thinners can be reviewed by the urologist performing Rezum.
