Dr Singal has a profound interest towards management of Hypospadias as often these problems are neglected, the psychosocial issue are tremendous, reconstructive surgery can be very challenging and to give good results is a true test of grit and skills. Typically Dr Singal does about 15-20 Hypsopadias surgeries every month along with Dr Manish Dubey. Almost 50% of these surgeries are failed or severe hyposapdias referred from across India and more than 15 countries. A set protocol of day care surgeries for most of the kids is followed whereby the child comes in the morning to the hospital and is discharged in the evening after surgery.

Dr Singal is well trained and experienced in Laparoscopic Surgery and Endourological surgeries in young kids for conditions such as Pelvi-ureteric junction obstruction, VUR, ovarian cysts, intersex disorders, undescended testis and hernia.

Dr Singal also takes a great interest in Antenatally Diagnosed Kidney abnormalities and does counselling for the prospective parents. Parents need to be properly counseled regarding the outcome and things required after birth. Most of these problems are easily treatable after birth.

Dr Singal feels that the children with hypospadias and DSD need to be treated by well trained specialists who can manage these small kids, understand the social & psychosocial aspects and offer good surgical results.
