I am looking for some general answers. I have a friend not from the US who is in need of surgery in correcting a case of Female Hypospadias. It seems pretty rare and in her country her doctors told her there is a 50% success rate, and that if it fails there are some MAJOR issues that can arise. I was wondering if anyone knew if the success rate here in the US is better and can anyone give advise to me about where to find a doctor to help correct this. Last question since she is out of country I know it will be pure out of pocket expense for this surgery, if at all possible what would be the average for this type of surgery. I really want to help her and I would be greatful for any help that you can give.
