Hypospadias

Hypospadias

Header Text: 

Hypospadias refers to a condition where the opening in the penis is not at the tip of the penis. It is usually classified according to the location of the opening. 

Body: 

As the defect increases in severity, the opening to the penis will be found further back on the penis. The most severe types can have openings at the region of the scrotum and even in the perineum (the region between the anus and scrotum).

Body Column 2: 

Hypospadias can be associated with another defect called chordee. Chordee is a downward curvature of the penis. Both hypospadias and chordee must be repaired so that a child can have normal urinary and reproductive health.
