Circumcision

Overview

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.

Laser circumcision
Where indicated, we can use a laser to remove the foreskin, instead of conventional surgical instruments. There is less bleeding after laser surgery.
