Urethra is extended
In a hypospdias repair, the urethral opening is extended from its uriginal location (usually along the undersurface of the shaft of the penis) to the tip of the head of the penis (the glans).
The extension can be created a number of ways either from local skin, the foreskin
, or with a graft
from another location. The penis is the reconstructed to have a normal cosmetic appearance.
