What Sets Us Apart
Urologists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone have helped hundreds of boys born with hypospadias, a common congenital condition in which the opening of the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the body, is not located at the tip of the penis. The urethral opening may be located on the head of the penis, along the shaft, or on the scrotum. Our doctors understand your concern about your son’s urologic and future sexual health and can determine whether surgery is needed based on the findings of physical examination.
Our surgeons have nearly 30 years of experience treating boys with hypospadias. They use the most advanced surgical techniques to successfully repair this condition in children who require surgery.
Treatment at NYU Langone
When surgery is necessary, an experienced pediatric urologist reconstructs the urethra, ensuring normal urinary and sexual functioning as well as an excellent cosmetic appearance.
