Doing a google search I found a few men who did not have surgery to correct it and were able to get their wives pregnant. it just takes a little more practice to get the sperm closer to the cervix.

My husband was also born with hypospadias, his urethra opening is also about 1/2 was down the shaft of his penis. He like your husband spent time as a child having surgery to repair his urethra, it was never successful. We were married May 14, 2011 and were hoping to start a family sooner than later. We made an appointment with his family Dr and found out that he too had undescended testicles that never formed properly. We figured we might need some help getting pregnant but we had no idea he was sterile.
I'm not saying this is the case for you and your husband but mine had an operation on
his underdeveloped testicles at the age of 2 that left him sterile. His family failed to share this information until confronted and to this day they deny that they ever knew.
So since this news we have seen a fertility clinic and after some discussion have decided to use a sperm donor in order to be parents
My advice would be to get to your Dr, know the facts about his condition and yours and get the recommendation of a good fertility clinic.
Hope it all works out for you

When my, now 17 year old Son was born with hypospadias, (before the age of 'google') I had no idea what it was. After discussing this with my family and doctor; I found out that my Father, as well, has this condition, and he produced 4 healthy daughters! Being born in the1940's, other than circumcision, he hadn't had corrective surgery. Hope all is working out for you.

My husband was also born with it. He did have the surgery but it wasn't fixed to well. :/
We got pregnant with my daughter after about 9 months of TTC.
This time around we haven't been to lucky. We were told that hypospadias is linked to fertility problem but not infertility. We were also told our best bet at getting pregnant would be an IUI. Our first one took but no such luck since.

I would see an RE.

My husband and I have been together 11 years and I was only on the pill the first couple months we were together. We just have 1 little girl.
IUI #1 = BFP but ended in the loss of our boy Carter
12 failed IUIs followed
After TTC baby #2 for almost 5 years
We are happily ADOPTING our rainbow baby.
