Rezum BPH Treatment

Dr Savdie offers patients with BPH access to the revolutionary new treatment, Rezūm. This minimally invasive approach offers an alternative to BPH medications and relieves symptoms safely and effectively. Rezum provides noticeable symptom improvement within two weeks and is a simple day surgery procedure, which has minimal postoperative discomfort. It preserves sexual and urinary functions and allows patients to return to regular activities within a few days.

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

With the da Vinci Surgical System, surgeons operate through just a few small incisions. The da Vinci System features a magnified 3D high-definition vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand. As a result, da Vinci enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.

The da Vinci System represents the latest in surgical and robotics technologies. Your surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times. da Vinci technology translates your surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside your body.

Dr Richard Savdie has access to the latest model of the da Vinci robot at St Vincent’s Private Hospital.
