TURBT Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumour

Using a specialised telescopic instrument, the bladder tumour is scraped and removed through the urethra. There is no operation or scar in the abdomen. This operation is done under spinal or general anesthesia and takes about 1 hour. After the operation, a urine tube is placed into the bladder for continuous bladder irrigation. This tube is removed after a day or two and the total hospital stay is about 3 days. The resected tumour is then sent to the lab for microscopic study to confirm the nature and stage of cancer.
