What is the TURP?

A TURP procedure is recommended by a medical practicioner when  patients are having issues related to there prostate gland. The most common problems related to a recommendation to obtain a TURP procedure is related to a Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia ( Or BPH – An age-related enlargement of the prostate that isn’t malignant ), Other related reasons why a TURP procedure would be recommend are when there is a decrease in urinary force due to blockage, inflammation,  infection, or pain when urinating.  These symptoms can cause a frequent need for urination. The TURP’s procedure purpose is to abolish fragments of the prostate gland to aliviate the condition.  

How we perform Turp at Family Hospital? 

The patient is put either in General Anesthesia or blockage. A narrow long instrument ( about 1 foot long and 1/half inch wide ) passes through the urethra to reach the prostate. This instrument is called a resectoscope, which has a small light and an electric loop that can cut tissue and seal blood vessels. The non-desired pieces of tissue are transported into the bladder by liquid to finally be flushed out once the treatment is complete.


Material used -       Resectoscope, other surgical materials


Day 1- Arrival in Airport, transporation to hospital for Pre-Op testing and physical consultation. Rest in Hospital
