Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgery used to treat urinary problems due to an enlarged prostate surrounding the urethra: benign prostate hyperplasia ou BPH. The symptoms can be very cumbersome to a man and may include: dribbling, slow stream, urgency, increase frequency, urinary tract infections, etc.
A combined visual and surgical instrument (resectoscope) is inserted through the tip of the penis and into the urethra. Using the resectoscope, the excess prostate tissue that’s blocking urine flow will be trimmed away.
TURP is generally considered an option for men with moderate to severe urinary problems that haven’t responded well to oral medication. Traditionally, TURP has been considered the most effective treatment for an enlarged prostate.
A first assessment is done by Dr Marois at one of the clinics.
The surgery itself is performed in the only accredited private hospital in Quebec, at the Centre Métropolitain de Chirurgie.
Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie de l’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, if you require his professional services, you will have to pay directly the Cliniques Marois for the services rendered.
To ensure the smooth running of the clinics aa well as a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and staff members, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for cancelling an appointment, 5 working days for cancelling a minor surgery in the office and 21 working days for major surgery at the CMC. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.
Change of appointment:
We understand that events occur and schedules change, so we ask patients to give us at least a 24-hour notice for any changes of appointment. We will be happy to reschedule another one for you. Failure to provide such notice within this timeframe will result in a $ 100 fee.
Thank you for your understanding.
