Hi there.. I can understand your concern. Your father can undergo surgery.. age is not contraindication if there are no other associated comorbities like high bp, diabetes, cardiac problem.. even if they there but under good control then he can be taken up for surgery.. turp( transurethral resection of prostate) like any other surgery, it is also associated with risks.. please get your father completely evaluated so that we know whether he is fit for surgery..
