Endoscopic Urinary Bladder Tumour Removal (TURBT)

Transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT), performed endoscopically, is the first-line procedure for diagnosis, staging, and treatment of visible tumors.

Transurethral resection (TUR) is the most common type of surgery for bladder cancer. It is used to treat early-stage bladder cancer that has not grown into the muscle.

The surgeon inserts a cystoscope through the urethra (the duct through which urine leaves the body) and into the bladder to remove any tumors.

What does Endoscopic Bladder Surgery Involve?

  • Endoscopic surgery is performed when it is considered the most effective and suitable treatment to treat superficial tumors after diagnosis of bladder cancer.
  • Endoscopic surgery, which is called transurethral bladder resection, is often used on patients with superficial tumors.
  • The operation allows tumor fragments to be collected. These fragments are assessed to check if the tumor is superficial (merely affecting the bladder’s surface lining) or invasive (affecting the bladder’s muscle wall).
  • The advice given to the patient differs completely depending on whether the tumor is one or the other.
