Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)


Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a common surgical procedure used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition characterized by an enlarged prostate gland causing urinary problems in men. During TURP, a thin, flexible instrument called a resectoscope is inserted through the urethra to reach the prostate.

The surgeon then trims away excess prostate tissue, relieving pressure on the urethra and improving urine flow. This minimally invasive technique is favored for its effectiveness in alleviating BPH symptoms like urinary urgency and frequency while typically requiring only a short hospital stay and offering quicker recovery compared to traditional open surgery.

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is a surgical procedure commonly performed at Prarthana Hospital & Research Centre to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). During TURP, a specialized instrument is inserted through the urethra to remove excess prostate tissue that is causing urinary obstruction. This minimally invasive procedure alleviates symptoms such as frequent urination and difficulty in voiding.

Treatment for Transurethral Resection of the Prostate

  1. Pre-operative assessment: Before the surgery, the patient’s overall health will be assessed. This includes a review of their medical history, physical examination, and possibly some diagnostic tests, such as blood tests, urine tests, and imaging studies.

  2. Anesthesia: TURP is typically performed under either general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia, which numbs the lower half of the body.

  3. Surgical procedure: During the TURP procedure, a surgeon uses a specialized instrument called a resectoscope, which is inserted through the urethra to remove excess prostate tissue. This helps to relieve urinary symptoms caused by BPH.

  4. Post-operative care: After the surgery, patients are closely monitored in a recovery area. They may have a catheter in place to help drain urine from the bladder and to prevent urinary retention. The catheter is usually removed a day or two after surgery.

  5. Pain management: Pain and discomfort are common after TURP. Pain medications and other forms of pain management may be provided to help manage post-operative pain.

  6. Monitoring: Patients will be monitored for any complications or side effects, such as bleeding, infection, or difficulty urinating.

There are several benefits associated with TURP

  1. Improved Urinary Symptoms: TURP is effective in relieving urinary symptoms caused by BPH, such as frequent urination, urgency, weak urine flow, and difficulty emptying the bladder. By removing excess prostate tissue, the procedure can alleviate these symptoms and improve the quality of life for individuals with BPH.

  2. Rapid Symptom Relief: Many patients experience significant relief from urinary symptoms shortly after undergoing TURP. This quick improvement in symptoms can lead to a better overall quality of life and increased comfort.

  3. Preservation of Sexual Function: TURP typically does not have a significant negative impact on sexual function. Unlike some other prostate procedures, TURP aims to preserve sexual function by avoiding damage to the nerves responsible for erections.

  4. Short Hospital Stay: TURP is often performed as an outpatient or with a short hospital stay. Compared to more extensive surgical approaches, TURP typically has a shorter recovery time, allowing patients to return to their regular activities relatively quickly.

  5. Minimal Scarring: TURP is a minimally invasive procedure performed through the urethra, which means there are no external incisions. This results in minimal scarring and reduces the risk of infection and complications associated with open surgery.
