Meatotomy is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. The procedure is performed to correct abnormal narrowing of the meatus (urethral opening). An incision and repair is made to widen the meatus.
How to prepare for the procedure
Meatotomy is performed under anesthesia. When preparing to have a procedure performed under anesthesia you can expect to start fasting the night prior to your procedure. Please consult with your surgeon to discuss the pre-operative testing which may include; blood work, chest x-ray, EKG, discontinuation of medications, and clearance for other medical reasons. The procedure will be done either at the office or outpatient surgery center.
