The system received FDA 510(k) clearance in September 2015 for treatment of BPH.  The Rezūm System is based on the Convective Water Vapor Energy (WAVE™) technology platform to treat a variety of endourological conditions beginning with BPH. The system uses radiofrequency energy to create sterile water vapor, or steam, to convectively deliver targeted, precise thermal energy treatments in a simple procedure with minimal discomfort, and provide improvements in urine flow and quality of life.


Dr. Levin was one of several authors of: PII-LBA1 Using the Thermal Energy of Convectively Delivered Water Vapor for the Treatment of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Due to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: The Rezum II Study, published in the Journal of Urology (J. of Urology), April 2016.
