Better Stream: The Rezum Procedure for the Treatment of BPH Listen To This Episode on Apple Podcasts

In this episode we discuss the Rezum procedure for the treatment of the urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate (BPH). Rezum is considered one of the so called MIST procedures -minimally invasive surgical therapies for BPH. Other such procedures include UroLift and Itind. So how does Rezum compare to these other procedures as well as to more traditional surgical therapies such as TURP or laser procedures? What are the risks and benefits? How durable is the procedure? And, probably most importantly, what kind of outcome or improvement can someone expect from the procedure? In order to answer these questions, we turned to an expert in the Rezum procedure, Dr. Kevin McVary.
