We use a unique sutureless method for circumcision that only takes 15 minutes. It is painless and does not require any injections or stitches.
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin.
Common reasons Doctors would recommend a circumcision are:
At our medical center, we employ a sutureless system for circumcision. This means the procedure is done without needing any injections or stitches.
First a numbing cream is applied. Then a plastic ring (Shangring) is locked into place. The foreskin can then be painlessly removed.
The Shangring takes up to 2 to 3 weeks to drop off leaving a very pleasing aesthetic result.
Is it painful?
No. We use a numbing cream before the procedure which makes it painless. After the procedure there is also minimal discomfort. Some patients may need to take some oral painkillers for a few days depending on individual tolerance levels.
How long does it take?
After the numbing cream is applied, it is left on for about 30 minutes to take maximum effect. The actual surgical procedure only takes 15 minutes After which, the Shangring takes about 2 to 3 weeks to fall off spontaneously.
Is there any downtime?
No. Patients can comfortable walk out immediately after the procedure. There is no effect on going to the bathroom. Some patients may find the ring a little cumbersome and if this gets unbearable, we can consider removing the ring earlier depending on the individual clinical situation.
“Every patient deserves our fullest attention.”
