is the surgical removal of some of the excess foreskin (prepuce) from the penis. The frenulum may also be removed at the same time, in a procedure called frenectomy. The word "circumcision" comes from Latin: “cicum” (meaning "around") and “caedere” (meaning "to cut").
Circumcision may be recommended to treat a variety of conditions such as pathological phimosis, chronic inflammation, of the penis, and penile cancer.
The Procedures of circumcision:
Circumcision removes the excess foreskin from the penis. We use clamps, such as the Gomco. These clamps are meant to protect the gland and stop any bleeding while we remove excess foreskin. Surgically delicate stitching all around the excision of the foreskin guarantees a good operation: no bleeding, perfect and rapid healing.
We do only adult circumcisions. Patients require 4 to 6 weeks of abstinence from masturbation or intercourse after the operation, allowing the wound to heal.
In our patients we use local pudenda anesthesia, infiltrating the local area with lidocaine 1% and rupivacaine (never use epinephrine) to obtain a complete painless operation.
