General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello and welcome to healthcare magic forum.
As your son is diagnosed by doctor as having epispadiasis, he has to undergo surgery to treat the condition.
Result and success rate of surgery depends on the position of urethral opening over the penis and more distal the opening higher the success rate. So, by this way you can understand the severity of the condition and result of surgery.
Best wishes for health of your son.
