Is hypospadius and chordee can be treated on an adult? What is the procedure, healing time and side effects (psychologically and physically)?

Repair depends upon severity of chordee, location of meatus (urinary opening), size of penis, presence or absence of foreskin & possible previous surgery. Urologist selected will explain all this. Healing time also varies with kind of repair. Back to work in 2 weeks, 6 weeks for sex. Counseling might be helpful. ...Read more
I had severe chordee and hypospedius.. I have had a two stage surgery.. After the second operation still my penis is bent want advice and send pics?

See answer : Though many men have a mild degree of curvature of the penis with full erection and which is normal, peyronie's disease is the most common (1-20% men >age 40) cause of an "abnormal" curvature and may or may not be associated with discomfort or a palpable "lump".

Yes: Hypospadias is a congenital defect where the opening of the urethra is at the bottom, rather than tip of head of penis. There is no association with infertility unless he had the misfortune of having an undescended testis (in 10% of boys with hypospadias)that is not functioning (doubtful if he is active and healthy). The biggest issue is the stream of urination & perhaps chordee-ventral curve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
