what is TURP?
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgery used to treat urinary problems that are caused by an enlarged prostate.
How is TURP done?
The resectoscope is inserted into the tip of your penis and extended through your urethra and into the prostate area. Your doctor won’t need to make any cuts (incisions) on the outside of your body.
Your doctor will use the resectoscope to trim tissue from the inside of your prostate gland, one small piece at a time. As small pieces of tissue are cut from inside your prostate, irrigating fluid carries them into your bladder. They’re removed at the end of the operation.
TURP is generally considered an option for men who have moderate to severe urinary problems that haven’t responded to medication. While TURP has been considered the most effective treatment for an enlarged prostate, a number of other, minimally invasive procedures are becoming more effective.
