Hypospadias is a condition where the opening of the penis is located underneath along the shaft, instead of at the top of the penis (glans).
Sometimes it is accompanied by a twisting of the penis, which causes a hooked appearance. Hypospadias may not be well known, but for men who experience it, the consequences can be devastating. With surgery, it is possible to correct the condition. The surgery is delicate, and demands a stay in hospital, but the results are usually excellent.
