What is the best age for hypospadias surgery?

Surgeons prefer to do hypospadias surgery in full-term and otherwise healthy boys between the ages of 6 and 12 months. But hypospadias can be fixed in children of any age and even in adults.

Does Glanular hypospadias need surgery?

In glanular hypospadias, the opening of the boy’s urethra is located on the head of the penis, but not at the tip. This is the mildest and most common form, and it may not require surgical correction, because it does not cause the urinary stream to be misdirected or the penis to be curved during an erection.
