Rezüm, the revolution in urology that comes to Juaneda Hospitals
Avant-garde, technology and innovation.
At Juaneda Hospitals, we always strive to offer the most innovative treatments and techniques that can facilitate and improve the daily lives of our patients.
We are pleased to take this opportunity to inform you that we are the first hospital in the Balearic Islands to offer the Rezüm Therapy (a steam therapy for the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia).
With Rezüm, a kind of pistol connected to a chamber, we can convert water into steam to necrotize the prostate cells, which the body itself eliminates and solves the problems caused by prostate growth.
Dr. Valentí Tubau, urologist at Juaneda Hospital, explains that the treatment is indicated for patients over 50 years of age with prostate problems and urinary difficulties that can be treated conventionally.
Up till now, the alternative to benign prostate hyperplasia were classical techniques such as open surgery or transurethral resection (TUR) of the prostate, which can result in side effects such as urinary incontinence, bleeding, erectile dysfunction and retrograde ejaculation.
Rezüm appeared five years ago in the United States. This therapy was used for patients who had problems with conventional treatments. Now these patients are spared all the unwanted side effects.
In addition, it is a very fast operation, minimally invasive, virtually painless and does not even require hospitalization. A catheter is used for the first two to three days. After two weeks, the patient begins to notice an improvement in his symptoms. The maximum improvement occurs after two to three months.
This procedure also preserves sexual function and normal ejaculation.
In short, with Rezüm we want to improve the quality of life of many of our patients. Interested in receiving more information?
Juaneda, always close to you.
