This is 4 year old Dilan who was born with a malformed penis. This not only caused him problems while urinating, but is also affecting his kidneys. Dilan's mother contacted HKIE through a relative of one of our board members and HKIE was able to get Dilan in to see Dr. Eddy Lopez at Hospital del Rio. Dr. Lopez explained to Dilan's mother that the treatment would involve two separate complicated surgeries to create a new urethra and also a new correctly positioned penile opening.
Dilan has successfully recovered from his first surgery and his second and final one will take place in about six months. After that Dilan will be a normal little boy and grow up as a fully functioning young man.
Thanks to Dr. Eddy for contributing his time and skills and Hospital del Rio for their generous discount. And of course thanks to our donors who make such miracles possible.
