Dr. Wallen is the only physician in the Brandon area to offer a new, minimally invasive procedure for enlarged prostate, also called benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). Rezum is an FDA-approved procedure that delivers water vapor (steam) directly to excess prostate tissue, using its energy to safely eradicate this extra tissue, which can be the cause of urinary symptoms.

Rezum is a procedure that can be done in Dr. Wallen’s office in under an hour, without general anesthesia. It’s an alternative for men who don’t want to deal with the potential side effects of BPH medication. The results are comparable to surgeries for BPH such as TURP, Greenlight, or simple prostatectomy, without the need for surgery. In most cases, Rezum can preserve sexual and urinary functions, which may be compromised with some other treatments.

If you have been diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia and are interested in this minimally invasive treatment option, please talk to Dr. Wallen. He can explain any potential risks and evaluate you as a possible candidate for the procedure.
