Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)

  • What is Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)?

    Transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) is a surgical procedure used to treat moderate to severe symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as the enlargement of the prostate. During TURP, the surgeon inserts a resectoscope (a visual and surgical instrument) into the urethra to scrape away the excess prostate tissue one piece at a time. Removal of the obstructive prostatic tissue using TURP allows normal urine flow from the bladder to be restored. The procedure is usually done under general or spinal anaesthesia.

  • Transurethral resection of prostate is an effective surgical procedure that reduces the urinary symptoms associated with BPH. Your doctor can recommendTURP if your urinary symptoms are moderate to severe, and if your symptoms could not be eased using available medications. TURP can be used to treat the complications that come from being unable to completely empty your bladder. These include frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs), kidney failure resulting from loss of normal kidney function, bladder stones, incontinence (inability to control urination), and recurring blood in the urine.
