Little Wicliff is full of energy and loved exploring the hospital when he came in to meet with our surgeons. Unfortunately he has hypospadias - a birth defect of the urethra in boys where the urinary opening is not at the usual location. It can be an embarrassing condition and has been linked to an increased risk of testicular cancer and fertility problems later in life. Doctors like to operate while the patient is young as the operation is easier to perform and recovery tends to be quicker. Hypospadias repair is considered among the most cost-effective health care interventions in the developing world. All donations will fund every aspect of Wiclif’s surgery including his post-operative care and transport to and from the hospital.
