From Assam to Navi Mumbai – A child with Failed Hypospadias surgery treated by Buccal mucosa graft urethroplasty at Hypospadias Foundation

Posted on January 10, 2019 by Dr. A K Singal

Results of the hypospadias surgery depend on the experience and interest of the surgeon in treating children with hypospadias more than the degree. Once a surgeon is doing more than 50-60 hypospadias repairs every year, the results of hypospadias surgery improve significantly. The accepted rate of complications in hypospadias correction is less than 25% in proximal severe hypospadias and less than 10% in more common distal or midpenile hypospadias. The children who have a failed hypospadias surgery may need a second surgery and in some cases even more surgeries. These failed hypospadias surgeries must be done by a hypospadias specialist or an expert hypospadias surgeon for best results. Read More

A child with multiple Failed Hypospadias surgeries finds cure at Hypospadias Foundation with Staged Buccal (oral) mucosa graft urethroplasty

Buccal (oral) mucosa is inner lining of mouth (Cheeks, lips) and is a very good layer to be used for redo surgery in failed hypospadias. Buccal mucosa urethroplasty (also called oral mucosa graft) is recommended when there is shortage of skin on the underneath of penis and there is no residual prepuce (foreskin). Hence, buccal grafts have no role in primary or first surgeries for hypospadias. Read More
