TURP

Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP):

TURP has long been the gold standard for treating  BPH.  Unfortunately, with the technology available 30 and 40 years ago  the procedure was associated with significant bleeding and poor visualization that occasionally resulted in inaccurate resection and possible  incontinence.

With today’s more advanced  instrumentation,  the TURP has become a very reliable procedure that carries the highest success rate and an extremely low complication rate.

The benefits from the TURP can last beyond 15 years.

The hospitalization consists of an overnight (23 hour) stay for observation and bladder irrigation.

The complication of incontinence is about 1% or less.
