Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international source for discovery, education and patient care.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN.

If you've been scheduled for a Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP), you probably have some questions. Our guide offers the answers you're looking for, and helps you prepare for your operation.
The prostate is a gland that surrounds your urethra, where your urethra meets your bladder. This gland can get bigger and make it hard to urinate. It's natural for the prostate to get bigger as you get older. The condition is called Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH). "Benign" means that it is not cancer. BPH results from an excess of tissue within the prostate, causing it to grow larger than usual and cause urinary complications.
A TURP is relatively non-invasive. In this operation, we cut away the extra prostate tissue. We use an instrument called a resectoscope, that goes in through your urethra into your prostate gland.
You may go home on the same day as your operation, or stay in the hospital for 1 night.
