Why choose Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital for your TURP procedure?

At Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital our leading consultant urological surgeons are renowned for their first-class clinical expertise and excellent outcomes from surgery. If you are struggling to pass urine, experience difficulty emptying your bladder and frequently feel the urge to urinate, your prostate may be enlarged and you may benefit from prostate resection surgery.

Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital has built a very strong reputation in the West Midlands for exemplary primary care and our expert consultants are well supported by our attentive matron-led nursing team, who pride themselves on ensuring a comfortable and well managed hospital experience.

Having a TURP procedure will most likely result in you staying at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton over night. Our private paint rooms are designed to maximise your comfort and entertainment during recovery. Each room is equipped with a large en-suit bathroom, widescreen TV and unlimited internet accessibility.

What happens during TURP?

  • 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 at our Wolverhampton Hospital

  • 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
