PEDIATRIC SURGERY AND PEDIATRIC UROLOGY
Most of the time, when children show symptoms of illnesses requiring surgery, they are treated by pediatric surgeons and/or pediatric urologists. You can access information regarding the illnesses of pediatric surgery and pediatric urology through this website, ask any questions you have via telephone or e-mail given in contact details. Additionally, for further information on HYPOSPADIAS and DISORDERS OF SEXUAL DEVELOPMENT, you can consult www.dsdturk.org
I wish you healthy days!
Hypospadias is a congenital problem affecting boy's penis. Hypospadias may present in three separate ways:
1- The hole through which urine passes -the meatus- is not situated at the tip of the penis. Instead, the meatus may present at the ventral side of the head, along the penis or at the base near the scrotum.
2- Due to incomplete development of the penis, the foreskin tends to gather at the top of the penis. This may either look like a hood or give the false impression of congenital circumcision.
3- Even when fully erect, the penis may still be bent or slightly curved to downwards - which may affect sexual activity.
One in every 150-200 boys born has some form of hypospadias. Hypospadias can be diagnosed early on in life and, and can be corrected surgically. Surgical correction can be undertaken in early childhood (6 months - 2 years of age is the optimum period) by pediatric urologists and/or pediatric surgeons who are experts in the field of hypospadias repair.
HYPOSPADIAS REPAIR WITH THE GLANULAR-FRENULAR COLLAR (GFC) TECHNIQUE - Journal of Pediatric Urology (2017)
This new operative technique is a turning point in hypospadias surgery, which is based on the anatomical features of the penis that are not taken into account since decades. With the GFC technique, the anatomical features of the glanular urethra, in particular the "fossa navicularis", "septum glandis" and the "frenulum" are taken into account for the first time. As being the most anatomical repair, the GFC technique gives the most effective and satisfactory results in hypospadias.

On this novel technique, we have recently organized two workshops at Istanbul Medical Faculty, Department of Pediatric Surgery, Division of Pediatric Urology. I would like to invite our colleagues to attend, observe and discuss their experiences with us in forthcoming meetings.
