How is hypospadias treated?
Surgery is required to help the urethra exit at the tip of the penis. The goal is to create a straight penis with the opening at the tip. Surgery usually takes place when the child is between 3 months to 12 months of age. It is not unusual for a child to need a second stage repair, especially for the more severe forms of this condition.
