What is TURP (Prostate Surgery)?

TURP (Prostate Surgery) is a surgical procedure for men that removes part of their prostate gland with the aim of making it easier to urinate.

It is performed to treat the common problem of an enlarged prostate that is causing difficulty with passing urine. This often occurs due to natural ageing. An enlarged prostate is also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

TURP surgery involves inserting a thin metal tube called a resectoscope into the tip of your penis and passing it along your urethra (the tube through which urine leaves your body) to your prostate. The resectoscope has a camera, light and loop of wire on the end. The wire is heated and used to shave off the overgrown areas of your prostate. The surgery takes about an hour and no cuts to your skin are required.

After your TURP operation, fluid is pumped into your bladder using a catheter (a thin, flexible tube) to flush away prostate pieces that have been removed.
