Surgical Treatment of LUTS in men with BPE


Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)

TURP is the standard surgery for BPE. The aim is to remove the part of the prostate which causes the symptoms. The procedure is done through the urethra without making an incision in your lower abdomen. This type of surgery is known as minimally invasive treatment.

When should I consider TURP?

TURP is the preferred surgical option for men with moderate to severe symptoms caused by BPE. It is most suited for men with prostates between 30-80 millilitres.
