Urologist Hugo Davila, MD

Fort Myers, Fla., Feb. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Florida Healthcare Specialists (FHS), a clinical practice of Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS), has added an innovative new treatment option that provides lasting relief for men experiencing symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as an enlarged prostate. Rezm Water Vapor Therapy uses natural water vapor to reduce the size of the prostate and provide lasting symptom relief without invasive surgery or the potential side effects of prescription drugs. FHS urologist Hugo Davila, MD is the only provider in Vero Beach offering the in-office procedure.

BPH is a condition in which a mans prostate enlarges and squeezes the urethra, causing frustrating symptoms such as frequent or urgent urination, a weak or interrupted urine stream and the need to get up several times a night to urinate. It affects about 50% of men by age 60, and 90% of men by age 85.

For years, the primary options for treating BPH were through behavior modifications, medications or invasive surgery, Dr. Davila said. However, medications may not work for everyone and may have undesirable side effects. With Rezm Therapy, were able to provide relief of BPH for men who want to avoid invasive surgery and implants.

During one short office visit, natural water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. When the steam contacts the tissue and turns back into water, it releases energy, killing the excess prostate cells that squeeze the urethra. Over time, the bodys natural healing response absorbs the dead cells and shrinks the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing BPH symptoms.

As many men get older, their prostate gland enlarges, which may squeeze the urethra and obstruct the flow of urine, added Dr. Davila. Some minimally invasive procedures may only treat BPH symptoms, not the underlying condition. Rezm Therapy does not require general anesthesia, and helps most men see symptom improvement within a few weeks. *

Florida Cancer Specialists President & Managing Physician Lucio Gordan, MD said, The addition of this therapy treatment, which has undergone extensive clinical trials, places FHS among the leading urology practices throughout the U.S. To date, more than 55,000 patients have been successfully treated.

Dr. Davila provides the most advanced and individualized treatments for urologic disorders of the male and female urinary and genital tracts, as well as conditions of the male reproductive system. He provides care at two locations: Florida Healthcare Specialists at 8005 Bay Street, Suite 5, Sebastian, FL and at Florida Cancer Specialists at 3730 7th Terrace, Suite 101 in Vero Beach, FL.
