My son had to have 3 ops to repair his hypospadias (between the ages of 9 and 18 months) - it''s more traumatic for the parents than for the child to go through. My son is now 4 without any problems. If you are in CT area, pls go to Dr Larry Jee - he''s the best in town.

Lee Anne, so sorry to hear your son was born with this problem. Fortunately medical science has progressed to where this can be corrected with surgery when he is a few months old. He will be circumcised as they will need part of his foreskin to repair the damage. Once this is done, he will be just fine. Google the suggestion by the doctor. BTW its " Hypospadias" . Stanford University, Stanford, California has a very good website with good photographs and details on repairing this problem.

When repaired he will be able to pee straight just like his dad. Good luck!
