TURP (Transurethral resection of prostate)

Transurethral resection of the prostate is performed usually because a man is having trouble urinating. The prostate is a “valve” that sits below the bladder and if too tight or swollen it can choke off the urethra (pipe urine flows through from the bladder to the toilet). Instruments are inserted via the penis and under vision a series of curettings (small flakes) are resected to widen the diameter of the urethra.
