What is hypospadias? Hypospadias is a congenital (present at birth) condition in which the penile urethra does not close properly during its development. Children born with hypospadias have a urethra that does not extend up to the end of the head of the penis. Instead, the urethra ends short and on the penile shaft. Most hypospadias urethras have the hole on the underside of the penis and not. At PARC Urology we offer hypospadias surgery to adults, including both first-time operations and reoperations after prior repairs. We are specialists in hypospadias operations, and we are experienced in doing these repairs in adults with one of the largest series of adult hypospadias .

Hypospadias Treatment. Surgery is the only management known to mend this rare anomaly. The recommended time frame corrective action for this abnormality is between 6-15 months of the child, while there is still a minimal effect to the emotion of the child. Adult hypospadias repair by Dr Djinovic can put it right. No hypospadias treatment as a child increases risk of risk of severe stricture disease as an adult as well as the chronic and progressive Balinitis Xerotica Obliterans (BXO) which causes hardening and inflammation of the foreskin and glans.

Hypospadias is the most common urological birth defect occurring in upto 1/150 newborn boys, which measures upto almost 100,000 (1 Lakh) new cases every year. While most of the cases are not hereditary or genetic, 6-8% of hypospadias cases have a family history of hypospadias or associated genetic disorders.
