Treatment for TURP in Miyapur‎, MathrusreeNagar.

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgery used to treat urinary problems that are caused by an enlarged prostate.

An instrument called a resectoscope is inserted through the tip of your penis and into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra). The resectoscope helps your doctor see and trim away excess prostate tissue that’s blocking urine flow.

TURP is generally considered an option for men who have moderate to severe urinary problems that haven’t responded to medication. While TURP has been considered the most effective treatment for an enlarged prostate, several other, minimally invasive procedures are becoming more effective. These procedures generally cause fewer complications and have a quicker recovery period than TURP.

What are the risks of a TURP?

As with any surgery, certain complications can occur with TURP. Some possible complications may include:

  • Bladder injury
  • Bleeding
  • Blood in the urine after surgery
  • Electrolyte abnormalities
  • Infection
  • Loss of erections
  • Painful or difficult urination
  • Retrograde ejaculation (when ejaculate goes into the bladder and not out the penis)

There may be other risks depending on your condition. Be sure to discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider before the procedure.
