Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Questions and answers about Hypospadias.

61. Why should not my son have the forskin reconstructed at the same operation with the hypospadias correction?

Because it interferes with healing and secretions would accumulate between the foreskin and the glans. This does increase the chances of infection and failure of the repair.

Foreskin was reconstructed during hypospadias-correction. By pulling back the foreskin you can see that the opening of the meatus is still at the origin place.

62. Why you do not recommend that my son be circumcised during the hypospadias operation?

Most surgeons perform circumcision during hypospadias repair. Prof. Hadidi prefers to leave it in case complications occur and the foreskin is needed to correct the complications.

 
There is not a lot healthy tissue available for a successful correctionat the end of operation through Prof. Hadidi

63. What are the precautions after the foreskin operation?

It is very important to avoid retraction of the foreskin for at least one month after surgery. Otherwise the whole operation would fail and the wound would disrupt completely. This should not be done neither by the parents nor by the pediatrician looking after the child later on.
