Enhancing Hypospadias Surgery: NWGH Department Launches Training Program and Receives International Recognition


The Department of Burns, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Northwest General Hospital & Research Center, Peshawar is renowned for its excellence in Hypospadias Surgery. However, there has been a decrease in the number of plastic surgeons involved in this field. The department receives referrals for the most complex cases, but plastic surgeons who specialise in Hypospadias Surgery have a better chance of achieving successful outcomes with fewer complications and longer follow-ups.

The department has recently, developed a training programme for surgeons who are interested in the field of Hypospadias. The programme is open to surgeons with a background in paediatric, paediatric urologic, or urological surgery and is provided free of cost. The training programme focuses on providing hands-on experience and exposure to advanced techniques, and practical skills that are essential for successful Hypospadias surgery.

Recently, Prof. Dr. Obaidullah, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, NWGH presented a paper on Hypospadias surgery at the Japanese Society of Plastic Surgeons international meeting in Nagasaki. The paper received great appreciation from the audience. An earlier version of the paper was also published in the British Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.
