The prostate is a small gland in the pelvis only found in men. It’s located between the penis and bladder and surrounds the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis). If the prostate becomes enlarged, it can place pressure on the bladder and urethra. This can cause symptoms that affect urination.

Why is TURP carried out?
TURP is often recommended when prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia) causes troublesome symptoms and fails to respond to treatment with medication.
Symptoms that may improve after TURP include:
- Problems starting to urinate
- A weak urine flow or stopping and starting like urinary incontinence
- Having to strain to pass urine
- A frequent need to urinate
- Waking up frequently during the night to urinate (nocturia)
- A sudden urge to urinate
- Being unable to empty your bladder fully
How is TURP performed?
TURP is carried out using a device called a resectoscope, which is a thin metal tube containing a light, camera, and loop of wire. This is passed along your urethra until it reaches your prostate, which means no cuts (incisions) need to be made in your skin. The loop of wire is then heated with an electric current and is used to cut away the section of your prostate that is causing your symptoms. A thin tube called a catheter is then inserted into your urethra to pump fluid into the bladder and flush away pieces of the prostate that have been removed.
TURP can also be performed by using a HOLMIUM LASER. This is also passed through a fiber into a resectoscope (telescope).
