Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Learning that your son has hypospadias and will likely need surgery may cause you to worry or be anxious. Don't hesitate to ask your child's doctor any questions you have, and if possible, have a family member or friend with you for support on the day of the surgery. The good news is that the surgery for hypospadias is usually very successful, and your very young child will probably not recall having the procedure.
