Hypospadias

Hypospadias (hi-poe-SPAY-dee-us) is a birth defect (congenital condition) in which the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis instead of at the tip. The urethra is the tube through which urine drains from your bladder and exits your body.

Hypospadias is common and doesn't cause difficulty in caring for your infant. Surgery usually restores the normal appearance of your child's penis. With successful treatment of hypospadias, most males can have normal urination and reproduction.Most infants with hypospadias are diagnosed soon after birth while still in the hospital. However, slight displacement of the urethral opening may be subtle and more difficult to identify. Talk to or visit your doctor if you have concerns about the appearance of your child's penis or if there are problems with urination.

Neouretheroplasty is a delicate new tube formation using flaps of skin of prepuse. It is done expertly with delicate tissue handling taking care of vascularity & under magnification for best results.

If hypospadias is not treated, it can result in:

> Abnormal appearance of the penis            

> Problems learning to use a toilet

> Abnormal curvature of the penis with erection 

> Problems with impaired ejaculation
