Meatal Stenosis: How We Treat


How is meatal stenosis treated?

A surgical procedure called a meatotomy is the most reliable form of treatment. This procedure involves an incision to enlarge the meatus (opening) and can be performed in clinic or in the operating room, depending on the degree of stenosis and how cooperative the patient is. Recurrence after this procedure is rare, as long as appropriate after care is given by the parent.
