Brief Answer:
hypospadias has to be surgically corrected

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to health care magic. Can you please share any information you already have about what kind of Heart defects and intestinal defects he is suffering from? Did the physician you took him to identify the syndrome for you?

To address these issues separately:
Hypospadias needs and will definitely improve with surgical correction. You will see the difference only after surgery. There is no other way of correcting it with medicines.

There are a number of syndromes affecting the heart and intestines along with hypospadias. Only a complete heart check and abdominal exam will evaluate and identify the syndrome. If you have that information, send it across to me and we can discuss in further detail.
Wishing him.speedy recovery

All of his health issues were corrected at birth. The only problem he is dealing with at this time is no growth of the penis. Hypospadia was corrected at birth. He only had one side of his heart working at birth, that was corrected. His intestines were twisted and also corrected at birth. I have been reading a little about things like micropenis. Can something like this be corrected and should he see a urologist to determine his exact problem ?

Brief Answer:
Yes you can

Detailed Answer:
If all the issues have been corrected at birth, then you need to see a urologist or endocrinologist to evaluate for micropenis.
In many kids the penis is buried partly in the fat above pubic bone making it falsely short.
A clinical examination should settle the doubt.

Hi, my son is 9 years old and has primary enuresis. He was born with mild hypospadias which was operated at 6 month. He is emotionally and socially adjusted, melancholy rather than exuberant, on the short side for his age (30%, I believe), does sports, has friends. My sister was bedwetting until at least 8, but not as often. Is there anything beside medication I can do? What is the prognosis with medication?
