Hello Damayanti, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Hypospadias is a condition in which the urethral opening is not located at the tip of the penis. There are 3 types of hypospadias, which are distinguished by the location of the urethral opening:
anterior hypospadias, which is when the urethral opening is located at the head of the penis (glandular) or in the neck of the penis (subcoronal) hypospadias media, i.e. when the urethral opening is located in the shaft of the penis (distal penis, midshaft, proximal penis) posterior hypospadias, that is, when hypospadias is located in between the penis and scrotum (penoscrotal), in the scrotum (scrotal), or between the scrotum and the anus (perineal) In general, surgery for hypospadias correction is performed when the child is between 3-18 months old. Doctors who perform hypospadias surgery are urologists. To perform surgery on babies, cooperation between surgeons and anesthetists is needed. Anesthetist is a doctor who will perform anesthesia on the baby. Doing anesthesia on babies is different from doing anesthesia in adults, so if you really want to perform surgery on your child before the age of 2 years, you can try to consult an Anesthesia Doctor in your city. You can try to ask if you can anesthetize your child for hypospadias surgery.
While waiting for surgery, make sure you do not circumcise the child, as the foreskin is required and reconstructive surgery for hypospadias.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
