This is a general textbook on hypospadias written by leading world experts in the field. The text is well-illustrated, with excellent graphics and schemes, and will therefore be of use to medical students and practicing surgeons and physicians alike. It will equally be appreciated by residents, fellows, pediatric and adult urologists. A consultation of the references provided should serve to complete this basic core knowledge that a reconstructive urologists performing hypospadias repair needs in their practice. Each chapter is concise and clear. In addition, general considerations about hypospadias, etiology, classifications, embryology and anatomy are discussed.

Important facts about surgical options, a variety of surgical procedures, detailed description of different techniques and possible tricks and traps are noted. These do not follow the traditional form of the majority of surgical texts, but are instead aimed at presenting the essential knowledge urologists need for the successful treatment of their patients. Chapters on practical procedures and operative surgical techniques with illustrations are included to provide a detailed and easy reference to the commonly used techniques and procedures.
