Bumrungrad has always realized the importance of raising our standards for more effective treatments. One of our vision statements is to adopt latest medical technology so Thai patients have access to a variety of treatment options which meet their needs. Our teams of specialists, nurses, and interdisciplinary healthcare professionals are devoted to delivering international standards of healthcare to our patients. Recently, the urology center at Bumrungrad performed non-surgical water vapor therapy
to treat BPH
for the first time in Thailand in early September 2021. The treatment yielded positive results with great patient satisfaction.
Dr. Viroj Chodchoy,
Medical Director of the Urology Center and Specialist in Urology at Bumrungrad International Hospital states, “During the past five months, there have been 65 BPH patients at Bumrungrad. Their ages range from 60 to 80. 70%-95% were satisfied with the results of the treatment. Our teams of urologists are following up with 53 cases to evaluate their treatment results after a month. Overall, urination has improved. To elaborate, the patients’ urine stream is stronger and faster. Patients will actually notice the results of the treatment within one month and the best results can be achieved from three months onwards.”
The treatment results are Bumrungrad’s remarkable success in treating BPH patients with water vapor therapy
for the first time in Thailand. The innovative water vapor therapy takes 10-15 minutes, and there is no need for a hospital stay. Water vapor therapy allows for a faster recovery, has fewer risks, and the prostate returns to its original physiological state and function sooner. It has zero or minimal effects on sexual health. Importantly, water vapor therapy is applicable for difficulty urinating in cardiovascular, stroke, diabetic, and obese patients.
