Hypospadias is a congenital disorder of the urethra where the urinary opening is not at the usual location on the TIP of the penis. It is the second-most common birth abnormality of the male reproductive system, affecting about one of every 250 males at birth.

For every male, the urinary orifice is right at the tip of the penis, whereas in this condition the orifice is on the under surface of the penis from the tip to the penoscrotal junction or even in the perineum, and if the orifice is not in the right place then the simple art of passing urine becomes a chore.

Surgery is usually recommended for hypospadias, with the goal to restore normal appearance and function to the penis. Over 25 patients registered for the camp and 15 were selected for surgery after screening.
