Transurethral Resection of a Bladder Tumour

 A Transurethral Resection is the standard surgical treatment for non-invasive bladder cancer and is known as a transurethral resection of a bladder tumour (TURBT). In most cases, a TURBT can be performed at the same time as a biopsy.

This procedure is performed under general anaesthetic using a cystoscope to find all the visible tumours and remove them from the lining of the bladder, through the cystoscope.

After having a TURBT, most people are able to leave hospital within 48 hours, and are able to resume normal physical activity within two weeks.

This procedure will be followed with a course of chemotherapy.
