Urology Specialties, Conditions, Treatments & Technology


A Congenital condition called hypospadias can produce a penis that only performs inefficiently but also looks different.

Hypospadias occurs in about 1 in 100 to 1 in 200 boys. When we see a boy with hypospadias there is a 20% chance of finding this in another family member such as father or a brother. There are different degrees of hypospadias, some minor and others more severe.
