Prostate laser and thermotherapy are two other types of minimally invasive procedures to cure complications in the prostate gland along with TURP. This surgery gets over within 60-­90 minutes.

A resectoscope is used to perform TURP surgery. There is a loop of wire in a tube which is heated and then used to cut the problematic section in the prostate. A catheter then flushes away the unwanted pieces of prostate. It is then left inside your body for ease of urination.

Post surgery there is an urge in the patients to urinate frequently. Blood also can be seen in the urine. The patient should immediately contact his doctor if he sees blood clots while passing urine.

The patient should ensure to undergo a digital rectal exam every year after his TURP surgery. This is necessary for screening of prostate cancer.
