Paris, TN – Dr. Joe Mobley, III, and Dr. John Beddies with Kentucky Lake Urologic Associates have recently introduced a new therapy – Rezūm™ Water Vapor Therapy – to treat enlarged prostates in older men.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition in which a man’s prostate becomes enlarged and obstructs the flow of urine. It causes frustrating symptoms, including frequent urination; weak, interrupted urine stream; difficulty starting and stopping urination; feeling a sudden urge to urinate; inability to urinate when needed; and lack of control over urination. BPH is more common in older men, affecting about 50% of men by age 60, and up to 90% of men by age 85.
Rezūm Therapy is an in-office treatment for men looking to treat BPH, not just the symptoms. It uses natural water vapor to reduce the size of the prostate and provides lasting symptom relief from BPH symptoms without invasive surgery or the potential side effects of prescription drugs.
Cleared by the FDA in 2015, this therapy is currently being used in many leading urology practices throughout the United States and around the world. To date, more than 55,000 patients have been successfully treated with Rezūm Therapy. Rezūm Therapy is considered a covered benefit by Medicare and most private insurance, but patients should verify their benefits with their insurance company in advance of the scheduled procedure
