The revolutionary Rezūm treatment takes only 5-10 to complete.

“As part of our commitment to mitigating patients’ pain and changing their life to the better, we strive to enhance innovation and excellence, adopt the best treatments in hospitals, attract the latest medical technology, raise the competence of our medical cadres, provide the best diagnostics and therapeutics, and implement standards of quality and distinction,” said HE Dr. Youssif Al Serkal,Director-General of the Emirates Health Services Corporation and Assistant Undersecretary for the Hospital Sector.

This comes as part of MoHAP’s efforts to deliver a world-class healthcare system and achieve leadership in the health field.

Advancing the quality of health services

Dr. Kalthoum Al Baloushi, Director of MoHAP’s Hospitals Administration said the Rezūm therapy is a qualitative addition to Al Qassimi Hospital services thanks to MoHAP’s unlimited support and the provision of best resources to upskill the quality of health services and patient safety, lauding the competence of the medical staff and their ability to deal with critical cases, stressing the Hospitals Administration’s eagerness to further develop the health services and achieve quality and excellence in MoHAP’s hospitals.

Safe therapy

Dr. Younis Al Shmsi, Consultant Urologist and Head of the Urology Department, Al Qassimi Hospital, said: “The Rezūm therapy is a safe technology and unpainful procedure. During the procedure, the urologist inserts a small narrow device through the urethra to deliver water vapor directly into the enlarged prostate tissue. For years, the primary options for treating prostate enlargement were through medications or surgery, making Rezūma new option for patients who are dissatisfied with their current choices for treating BPH,”
