With careful attention to patient selection and anesthesia, as well as easy-to-manage dressings and urinary diversions, outpatient surgery for all degrees of hypospadias can be performed safely and economically. By using these techniques over an eighteen-month period all hypospadias operations were performed in the outpatient department. This included thirty-four minor operations as well as twenty-five major hypospadias repairs. Seven complications were encountered in the fifty-nine operations.
