Meatotomy


  Why whould a meatotomy be necessay (complete vertical cleft of the glans (glands))?
------------------------------------------------------
Dear Edservih, Thanks for your question.
A meatotomy is a simple surgical procedure for relieving a urethral obstruction to urine or semen flow caused by scar tissue at the tip of the penile urethra. This narrowing is called  meatal stenosis.  Symptoms associated with meatal stenosis could include a  curved  thin stream, penile pain with urination or can be asymptotic.   Scar tissue inside the urethra is called a urethral stricture and can have the same symptoms.
More individualized care is available at the Henry Ford Hospital and its suburban campuses by calling  1 800 653 6568. We can also arrange local accommodations through this number if this is your need. Please bring any physicians
