Rezūm receives NICE approval
21 Aug 2019
Media coverage of the prostate steam treatment, Rezum, pioneered by Professor Richard Hindley, has been followed up by confirmation from NICE that the minimally invasive treatment has been approved as a treatment option for the NHS.
Professor Hindley has been carrying out the procedure since March 2017 and over 100 cases have been performed. The procedure is widely used in the USA. Benefits of the procedure are attractive to both the NHS and patients due to the short procedure time and no need for overnight stay.
