Hypospadias Failure Treatment Delhi – My name is Santosh Verma, I am a 28 years old single man suffering from the Penoscrotal hypospadias faliure that made my life challenging as I couldn’t reach a woman for marriage due to embarrassment and shame of the condition. However, my life changed when I met Dr. Gautam Banga through the recommendation of my closest friend. Today, I came here to share my story to inspire those who are living in the dark due to a treatable condition like hypospadias.
It all started with my birth in the local hospital of Banka, a district of Bihar. As the only son of the family, my mother was very happy with my birth. As I was born healthy, my mother and I got discharged, and went home after being in 24 hours of observation in the hospital. That time she didn’t detect anything suspicious.
However, after 2 days of the discharge from the hospital, she noticed something unusual while changing my nappy, something she overlooked earlier in the hospital. She realized that I was not urinating normally as my urinary opening is not placed at the tip of the penis but at the point where the penis and scrotum meet. She was shocked and worried at the same time and called my father to see if she is misunderstanding the condition. My father confirmed the same thing and immediately called the hospital I was born in.
The Journey of Discovery of Hypospadias & Hypospadias Failure & further Hypospadias Failure Treatment Delhi?
After the consultation over the phone call my family decided to take me to the hospital for the check-up. The paediatrician there told my family that I was suffering from the hypospadias- a rare condition that affects only 1 out of 2000 children. It is the birth defect in which the opening of the urethra is not located at the tip of the penis. He also informed my family that the type of the hypospadias depends upon the location of the opening and as in my case it was a joint point of penis and scrotum. Hence, I was suffering from Penoscrotal hypospadias.
Although he has knowledge about the hypospadias, he has no previous experience dealing with such cases. So, he referred my case to another doctor whom he thought can help us. The new local paediatrician asked my parents to wait for at least four years before performing the surgery. As back then, the internet was not the thing and my parents didn’t have any idea or sources to find more information about my condition so, they decided to go as per the instructions which were not correct as hypospadias could be treated soon after the birth. So, they waited until I turned four years old to get the surgery to treat the hypospadias. But that simple treatment turned out to be a nightmare for me and my family.

My parents saved every penny for those four years to get my surgery done. Finally, the day came and I underwent the surgery as a child to repair the problem and it seemed to work well or that’s what my parents thought that time. Well, the operation worked. I had no issue for the next two years until the problem begin again so, I went through another surgery for the same that lasted until I turned 18. After the surgery, my father found a better job opportunity in Delhi, and with the hope of giving us a better life we shifted to Delhi.
The problem started when I reached the age of sexual maturity, and the growth of my penis caused my surgically repaired skin to tear down producing a hole near the scrotum. Although I had a real opening at the tip of the penis, the hole at the bottom caused me to leak. It was so embarrassing that I never told my parents about it until I turned 20.
Hypospadias Failure Affected Personal and Professional Life led to Hypospadias Failure Treatment Delhi
During the second year of my college I figured out some ways to avoid leaking urine in my clothes while hiding out my problem from everyone. In my whole college life, I avoided dating girls thinking they would consider me as a freak if they ever found out about my condition. Over time, this fear took a form of insecurity that affected my confidence and communication skills at work. Soon, I started to avoid everyone, my friends, family, or colleagues at the workplace. During that time, it felt like this condition was eating me from inside out and the inability to share it with anyone made it far worse than it already was.
Finding Doctor Gautam Banga for Failed Hypospadias Treatment Delhi
At the age of 22, I decided that I had enough of this condition and no longer wish to carry the burden of embarrassment on my shoulders. I decided to find more about my condition like causes, diagnosis, and treatments of hypospadias failure. After hours of research on the internet I stumbled upon the website that was providing Treatment for the failed hypospadias. This caught my eye and I decided to learn more about the website and how they treat the condition of failed hypospadias. After reading all the posts and positive feedback on the page I decided to reach out to the Urologist Dr. Gautam Banga and shared my condition. He patiently listened to the story I had to convey and informed me that “Fistula” the hole at the joint of penis and scrotum is one of the complications of the hypospadias surgery and it is treatable with another operation.
For someone who had lost all the hopes of leading a healthy lifestyle the statement came out like a ray of sunshine after the storm. With the courage I received from the words of Dr. Banga I finally decided to confront my family about my condition, and to my relief they came out more supportive than I thought. I went for my consultation with my father where he asked a few questions about the surgery including risks, complication, and success rate. Dr. Banga calmly answered all the questions while assuring my father and me that the success rate of this type of surgery is quite higher than the other.
A Successful Surgery That Changed My Life
After the check-up, further consultation, and mutual agreement, we came up with the date of my surgery. The day came and to say I was not scared would be a lie but I was aware that I have put my trust in the right person.
The surgery has only treated my condition but also helped me to regain the confidence I had lost while struggling with my condition. I regularly meet Dr. Banga twice for the check-up to see if other complications are there. However, the surgery was successful and the problem was resolved.
Today, I feel like leading a completely different life than I used to do two years back. The urine leakage that used to cause me inconvenience before was completely gone. For this, I would like to whole-heartily thank Dr. Gautam Banga. Unlike other doctors, he walked another mile to cure my insecurities that took over my true personality. Dr. Gautam Banga is definitely one of the doctors who have the power to change lives.
