Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)                                          

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical operation performed under a general anaesthetic performed by or supervised by a consultant urological surgeon.  It involves using electro-cautery via endoscopic approach via the urethra.  

 

The internal aspect of the prostate is removed in a similar way to coring out the centre of an apple, which relieves obstruction to the flow of urine through the prostate.  

 

Below you will find a link to the British Association of Urological Surgeons information sheet on this procedure, as well as a link to NHS Choices.
