Meatal stenosis is a condition where the opening in a boy's penis where the urine (pee) comes out is too small. If your son has meatal stenosis, you’ll probably notice it when it’s time to toilet train. The good news is, our pediatric urologists can fix meatal stenosis with a simple outpatient surgery.

Services We Offer for Meatal Stenosis
We offer a variety of diagnostic and treatment services, which may vary depending on the condition or location, including:
- antibiotics (because with meatal stenosis, urinary tract infections are more common)
- meatoplasty or meatotomy (this meatal stenosis surgery technique involves only a quick, outpatient procedure to make the opening on the penis larger so that your child can pee freely and without any discomfort)
