Newborn Conditions


The end of the urethra (tube connecting the bladder to the tip of the penis) is not developed properly and the urine can come out in the wrong place. The opening of the urethra (meatus) can be located at any point along the underside of the penis.


Tongue-tie is a common but often overlooked disorder in babies. It is present since birth and occurs when a small frenulum (which should have disappeared during the development of the fetus), remains in the underside of the tongue, restricting its movements.

Undescended Testicle

Some children are born without testis in the scrotum. Commonly, this is called “undescended testicle” or cryptorchidism. In most cases, there is a palpable testicle that is not normally situated into the scrotum. A reexamination is scheduled at the age of 6 months old for deciding what must be done: follow up or surgical correction.


A benign "vascular" spot or tumor that can result in disfiguring or annoying lesion for the functioning of an organ (the eye, as an example, if the angioma is on the eyelid).

Correction on inguinal hernia

The frequency of inguinal hernia in premature newborns (9-11%) is higher than in full-term (3-5%) and presents a significant risk of incarceration (30%). An incarcerated hernia increases the risk of gonadal ischemia (testicle and ovary), obstruction, and intestinal ischemia.
