TURP

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical treatment for prostate enlargement (BPH). The procedure removes excess prostate tissue that is obstructing the flow of urine from the bladder, using a scope and heated wire. Tissue is resected from the prostate to create a wide channel for urine to flow through more easily.

TURP is the ‘gold standard’ for BPH treatment and the most commonly performed operation to improve urine flow. Most men experience an immediate improvement in urine flow, but other symptoms such as urinary frequency may take several months to improve.

There are several side effects that must be carefully considered before going ahead with the procedure. Alternative treatment options include minimally invasive techniques Prolieve®Urolift® and Rezūm™.

At URODOC, we are highly experienced in treating prostate enlargement using TURP and other minimally invasive therapies. Speak with our team to find out which treatment option is the most suitable for you.
