Consultant urologist Mr Mahmalji has become the first surgeon in the county to perform a procedure called Rezum.
Nuffield Health Hereford Hospital has announced a new treatment for prostate enlargement, also known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). Rezum uses water vapour to treat extra prostate tissue, which affects around 50 per cent of men over the age of 50, 70 per cent of those over 70, and up to 90 per cent of men over 80. Mr Mahmalji said: “Benign enlargement of the prostate is very common as men age, and it is often associated with a reduced urinary stream, frequent or urgent visits to the toilet and a feeling of incomplete emptying. “These symptoms occur as the results of enlargement of the prostate, which narrows the prostatic urethra – the pipe that allows urine to be expelled.” The treatment takes just five minutes. It applies radio frequency energy to a few drops of water to create vapour and injects a small amount of steam into the prostate. This leads to shrinkage of the prostate, which can relieve men of urinary symptoms.
