Regal Hospital is proud to announce the successful completion of Karnataka’s inaugural Rezum surgical intervention for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This groundbreaking procedure was performed on a 68-year-old patient, marking a significant advancement in the treatment of BPH within the region.
The Rezum method utilizes the innovative application of water vapour to ablate excess prostate tissue, offering a minimally invasive solution that allows for same-day discharge. Dr. Surirajuv, a senior urologist at Regal Hospital, led the pioneering procedure, highlighting the technique’s benefits and efficiency.

“This procedure represents a significant step forward in the treatment of BPH,” said Dr.Suriraju,V, MD & CEO, Regal Hospital, Bengaluru “The Rezum method is performed under local anaesthesia, where a needle is introduced through an endoscope into the prostate. High-temperature water vapour is then delivered directly to the targeted tissue, providing a safe and effective treatment option. Patients can expect a pain-free experience with the convenience of being discharged on the same day.”he explained

The introduction of the Rezum procedure aligns with Regal Hospital’s commitment to offering cutting-edge medical solutions and improving patient outcomes.
