In brief: It can

You might think about consulting a different urologist than the dr who performed the turp, because incontinence after TURP is fortunately uncommom, ; problem could/should have been adressed by him/her. Suggest you do a little research and call local major hospital ;/or local urology group practice to enquire name/s of urologists performing the most artificial sphincter implants.

In brief: Yes

This problem needs thorough urologic evaluation to determine the extent of the incontinence and whether this is a consequence of sphincteric injury, or just an overflow incontinence.
There are artificial urinary sphincter procedures that can be used in the appropriately selected individual. Your board certified urologist should know how to evaluate and treat this condition.
