Why choose Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital for your prostate resection surgery?

If you are struggling to pass urine, experience difficulty emptying your bladder and frequently feel the urge to urinate, you may be suffering from an enlarged prostate and could benefit from transurethral resection prostate surgery, more commonly known as a "TURP".

Our experienced team of urologists have been practicing at Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital for countless years, earning a respectable  reputation for their professionalism and successful patient outcomes.

By choosing to undertake your prostate treatment with us, you will be provided with a comprehensive treatment plan individually tailored to you, including any additional aftercare needed with no hidden hospital costs.

How to book an initial consultation at Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital

If you are considering a prostate resection or want expert advice from a men's health professional, you can discuss your treatment options with one of our urology consultants in Leamington Spa by booking a private consultation via our dedicated hospital enquiry team on 01926 436 351.

What happens during TURP surgery?

  • TURP is usually performed under spinal anaesthetic and takes less than 1 hour
  • Your surgeon will insert a resectoscope (a small operating telescope with a light) into your urethra (the tube that carries urine from you bladder to your penis) and remove enough prostate tissue to relieve the pressure on your urethra
  • Water is then flushed into the area to clear any debris
  • Your urethra will be swollen and sore after this procedure so a thin tube called a catheter will be inserted into your urethra to allow urine to drain from your bladder
  • You may experience a burning sensation when you first pass urine. This should ease quickly.

After your prostate resection surgery

  • You should be able to go home after 3 - 4 days
  • Most men begin to return to normal activities within a week
  • Do not lift or move anything heavy for at least the first 4 weeks
  • Avoid any strenuous activities such as housework or gardening until released to do so by your surgeon
  • Take over the counter pain relief such as paracetamol if needed
  • You may see some blood in your urine
  • Drink plenty of fluids to help flush out your system
  • You may also feel the need to urinate more often
  • As your bladder and urethra heal this should ease
  • Discuss any return to work with your consultant
  • Most men make a good recovery, with a big improvement in their symptoms

General complications may include:

  • Pain
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Blood clots (deep vein thrombosis - DVT).

Specific complications of TURP:

  • Impotence
  • Incontinence
  • Fertility problems
  • Retaining urine
  • Prostate enlargement.
