Bladder cancer surgery. Surgeon performing a transurethral resection of a bladder tumour (TURBT) on a patient with cancer of the bladder lining (transitional cell carcinoma). The surgeon is accessing the bladder through a cystoscope, which is inserted in the patient's urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. He will use a wire loop to remove the tumour. This is minimally invasive, or keyhole, surgery and requires minimal aftercare.
