Can you do a meatotomy when I have my adult circumcision?

Dr. Reed, Been told I have a meatal stenosis and will you be able tom do a meatototm,y while I am under anesthesia for my adult circumcision? Dave

Dear Dave,

Yes, a urethral meatotomy for meatal stenosis easy to do.  I am assuming the opening is just narrow at the very tip, otherwise it’s called a urethroplasty and that might require diverting your urinary stream for optimal wound healing. Surely while you are under local anesthesia we can verify that all we are talking about is a small web.  You may have a few drops of blood in the urine at the beginning of your stream for the first 24 hours and perhaps a little burning.
