Prairie Lakes Unveils New Procedure for BPH

Jan 26, 2018 07:15AM ● By MED Editor

Prairie Lakes Healthcare System recently introduced Rezūm, a minimally invasive option to relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). 

 Dr. Chris Adducci now offers Rezūm as a new treatment option for BPH in the Watertown region. Rezūm harnesses the natural energy stored in water vapor to treat the extra prostate tissue that is causing symptoms such as waking up multiple times during the night to urinate, increased frequency and urgency, irregular and weak urinary flow, anxiety, challenges with sexual function and limitation in daily activities.  Typically patients can go home on the same day of the procedure and see rapid symptom relief. 

 “Rezūm is one of several treatment options offered by Prairie Lakes Urology for BPH patients who are looking for an alternative to drugs or major surgery,” said Jill Fuller, President and CEO. “Adding this innovative treatment to our list of options demonstrates our dedication to improving the quality of life of our patients.”

 Prairie Lakes Healthcare System is a leader in regional healthcare for northeastern South Dakota and western Minnesota.
