Surgery for Urinary Problems
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), a surgical procedure, is used to treat urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate.
A scope is inserted
through the penis tip and into the tube that carries urine from
your bladder (urethra). The prostate surrounds the urethra. Using the scope, the urologist trims away excess prostate tissue that's
blocking urine flow.
