Rezum (prostate steam treatment) for BPH at Nuffield Taunton

Men in Somerset are now benefitting from a new minimally invasive treatment for benign prostate obstruction symptoms which involves shrinking the prostate gland through transurethral water vapour injection (Rezum procedure). The procedure is very quick (generally less than 20 minutes), preserves sexual and urinary function and has a more rapid recovery than the traditional  procedures to remove prostate issue (such as TURP or HoLEP). Following approval of this new technology by NICE in 2018, the first patients were treated at Nuffield Taunton Health Taunton Hospital in November this year.
