What Sets Us Apart

Urologists at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York 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.
