Patients with BPH
For men who DO NOT have prostate cancer, but have a common condition called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), prostaterisk.ca may be able to help you.
If you are frustrated with urinary symptoms, including frequent urination during the day and night, hesitancy in urination, urgency to urinate, and a weak urinary urinary stream, you may be suffering from an enlarged prostate condition – BPH.
BPH is a condition that blocks the ability of the bladder to empty completely due to an enlarged prostate gland that blocks the bladder to empty.
If treatment is warranted, you may be advised to go on lifelong medication that has side effects or be offered a surgical procedure called a TURP with many potential complications.
Prostaterisk.ca now offers a new, non-invasive procedure called REZUM to treat men with BPH.
REZUM works by inserting sterile water vapour (steam) into the prostate gland in a very focal and precise way. This removes the blockage within the prostate gland, allowing an improvement in urine flow.
The procedure is performed in a clinic, outpatient setting and does not require any hospital stay.
