Faridabad, 31 January, 2024– The ILSS Ashwani Hospital in Faridabad recently hosted an international workshop on Water Vapor Therapy for Prostate, also known as Rezum, on 31 January, 2024.
The workshop, aimed at advancing knowledge and techniques in the field of minimally invasive therapies for prostate conditions, welcomed Dr. Dean Elterman from Toronto, Canada, a pioneer in MIST (Minimally Invasive Surgical Therapies) for prostate treatment, as the distinguished international faculty.
The workshop was attended by 20 senior urologists from the Delhi NCR region, showcasing a strong interest in the latest advancements in prostate care. The highlight of the event was the successful operation of three patients suffering from enlarged prostates who were deemed high risk and not suitable candidates for conventional surgical treatments. The Rezum procedure, a cutting-edge technique utilizing water vapor therapy, proved to be effective in addressing their conditions with minimal invasiveness.
Throughout the workshop, delegates engaged in comprehensive discussions on the techniques and intricacies of the Rezum procedure, further enhancing their understanding and proficiency in this innovative approach to prostate treatment.
