Circumcision is surgical removal of the foreskin. Some of the reasons for needing a circumcision are:
- recurrent infection of the foreskin
- recurrent tears of the foreskin
- narrowing of the foreskin (phimosis)
- hygiene reasons
- religious purposes
In most cases, circumcision can be done as a day surgery procedure.
Where indicated, we can use a laser to remove the foreskin, instead of conventional surgical instruments. There is less bleeding after laser surgery.
