Hypospadias Repair Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

The surgery is done to treat male children born with hypospadias. The condition can make it difficult for the child to urinate while standing. It can also affect sexual function later in life.

The surgery is typically done at age 3-18 months old. It can also be done in older children and adults. Once the diagnosis is made, circumcision is not done. Tissue from the foreskin may be used during surgery.
