See how TURP and TUIP procedures are carried out and why the laser prostatectomy is becoming an increasingly popular form of treatment. 

In this video, the Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate or TURP process is explored and how through the use of a resectoscope it is possible to shave slivers of the prostate. The film also highlights the increased usage of the laser prostatectomy to dissect the prostate and presents the benefits of laser surgery, such as reduced bleeding. 

Finally the TUIP process (Trans Urethral Incision of the Prostate) is discussed, particularly its falling out of fashion as a surgical procedure in favour of alternative methods.
