Newborn Male Circumcision, The Pain-Free Technique
What is Circumcision?
A circumcision is an operation to remove the skin covering the top of the penis (the glans). This skin is called the foreskin. Circumcision usually is done in babies and young children but can be done at any age for medical or religious reasons.
When is circumcision performed?
At Medeor, Our urologist prefers to perform circumcision for male babies during the first two weeks of birth to ensure a pain-free procedure and quick healing.
We also recommend you visit the urologist within the first week of birth to allow time for insurance approval and other formalities (If applicable).
At Medeor, Our Urologist perform circumcision under local Anesthesia and without any pain for babies less than three months old.
The procedure usually takes 30 minutes for Babies using the Dissection Plastic technique that allows a Pain-Free recovery. (Babies will have no pain when they go home)
Your Baby will stay for a couple of hours after the procedure in the hospital to ensure that he is passing urine freely, Pain-Free, and his dressing is ok.
After 48 hours, you should bring the newborn to the hospital for a follow-up visit.
During the follow-up visit, the doctor will remove the dressing, check the wound has healed properly and, answer any inquiries from the parents.
No Further Follow up is needed.
