Transurethral Resection Of The Prostate

What Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)?

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgery used to treat urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate.

A combined visual and surgical instrument is inserted through the tip of your penis and into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra). The prostate surrounds the urethra and with the specialized instrument your doctor trims away excess prostate tissue that’s blocking urine flow.

TURP is generally considered an option for men with moderate to severe urinary problems that haven’t responded to medication. Traditionally, TURP has been considered the most effective treatment for an enlarged prostate.

TURP helps reduce urinary symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), including:

  • Frequent, urgent need to urinate
  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Slow (prolonged) urination
  • Increased frequency of urination at night
  • Stopping and starting again while urinating
  • The feeling you can’t completely empty your bladder
  • Urinary tract infections

TURP might also be done to treat or prevent complications due to blocked urine flow, such as:

  • Recurring urinary tract infections
  • Kidney or bladder damage
  • Inability to control urination or an inability to urinate at all
  • Bladder stones
  • Blood in your urine
