First operation for correction of chordee should be at 1 year of Age followed by formation of tube(urethroplasty) after 6 months of 1st operation. If some minor problem like fistula occurred ( chances- 10%) , third operation may be required 6 months after. Dr. Nitin Goel Consultant Pediatric Surgeon Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon
