New Non-Surgical Treatment for Prostatic Hyperplasia Available at Rugani Hospital

For those suffering from prostatic hyperplasia, there is good news. Rugani Hospital in Monteriggioni, Siena, known for its expertise in treating prostate pathologies, is now offering a new non-surgical treatment using thermal energy and water vapor. This innovative procedure, known as Rezum, is non-invasive and does not require the use of drugs to address the enlargement of the prostate gland.

According to Doctor Fabio Maria Mattei, who introduced and performs the Rezum procedure at Rugani Hospital, the number of patients diagnosed with prostatic hyperplasia is significant. In Italy alone, over 7 million men, mainly over the age of 60, were diagnosed with an enlarged prostate in 2020. The enlargement of the gland can lead to compression of the urethra, causing a reduction in urine flow and a progressive risk of permanent damage to the bladder.

The Rezum procedure works by using thermal energy and water vapor to remove excess prostate tissue through a light sedation process. Patients undergoing this treatment at Rugani Hospital experience no side effects or contraindications for the sexual sphere, preserving erectile function and ejaculation intact. The first results of the treatment can be seen within approximately two weeks, significantly alleviating the discomfort caused by the pathology.

Rugani Hospital has been at the forefront of modern treatments for prostate pathologies. The hospital is equipped with the ‘Focal One’ robotic system with focused ultrasound for the treatment of prostate cancer. This advanced technology allows for targeted treatment, reducing the risks of side effects such as urinary incontinence and impotence. Additionally, Rugani Hospital offers other advantages linked to radical or focal HIFU treatment, making it a reference center for prostate care.
