Epispadias: effective treatment methods in Israeli clinics
Epispadias is a very rare type of congenital disease that occurs in newborns in one case in 55-70 thousand. Epispadias is a disease in which the wall of the urethral canal does not overgrow in certain areas or is completely absent.

Timely and absolutely accurate diagnosis is the key to the shortest path to the child's recovery. In Israel, diagnostic services are provided as soon as possible: after consulting a urologist on the first day of stay, the patient undergoes a series of medical studies, the purpose of which is to determine the localization of the biopsy, its type, degree and other indicators. To do this, the doctor prescribes:
- CT, MRI;
- urodynamic examination.
Results studies are sent to the attending physician, who, on the third day of the little patient's stay in the clinic, convenes a consultation of specialists, which determines which method of epispadias can be effectively cured in one case or another. Also at this stage, parents are introduced to the prices of therapy, the full cost of treatment and services related to the child's stay in the clinic before surgery and during rehabilitation.
