Bipolar Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)

Harley Street, London

Bipolar Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure aimed at alleviating symptoms of an enlarged prostate. Unlike traditional TURP, which uses a monopolar system, bipolar TURP employs a safer method by using a bipolar electrode to remove excess prostate tissue.

This results in reduced risks of complications such as bleeding and electrolyte imbalances. Patients considering this procedure can expect improved urinary flow and relief from bothersome symptoms like frequent urination or difficulty starting urination.

Recovery is typically quicker compared to open surgery, with most patients returning to their daily activities within a few days to a week. If you’re exploring treatment options for prostate enlargement, discussing the benefits of bipolar TURP with your urologist may be a promising step towards a better quality of life.
