CIRCUMCISION MOHEL & HYPOSPADIAS. Hypospadias in boys is where the urethra (urine opening) development appears in a slightly different position. The frequency of occurrence is 0.5% (1 in 200). In general, if the hypospadias is mild, with the opening of the urethra just a little down from normal and with no bending of the penis, then no treatment may be needed. In general when treatment is indicated, repair operation is performed when aged one year. The degree of repair will indicate whether the repair is by one operation (known as one stage) or two operations (known as two stage).
Circumcision Bris Mila (Brit Milah) on hypospadias babies is performed by combining the hypospadias repair operation and the Bris Milah at the same operation.
Baby A I examined and assessed for Bris Milah I diagnosed hypospadias.
I discussed this with the family GP and consultant colleagues at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children London.
After further assessment, Baby had an operation aged one year for hypospadias and I performed the Bris Milah at the same operation.
For any medical problems of hypospadias related to performing a Bris Milah (Brit Mila), contact Dr Harris
