Our urologists provide circumcision, or the removal of the skin covering the tip of the penis, for men who wish to undergo the operation. There is less risk of complication when the surgery is performed on a child, but adults still go home the day of the surgery and only experience minor pain for a couple days.

Risks Associated With Being Uncircumcised:

  • Higher risk of urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted infections, penile cancer, and prostate cancer

Treatment Options:

  • Outpatient procedure

What Happens During the Procedure:

The urologist removes the foreskin while the patient is under anesthesia, or in some cases a numbing cream is applied to the penis. The outpatient procedure only lasts about 10 minutes.

Treatment Options:

  • Personal, religious, or family benefits
  • High success rates
  • Quick recovery

Circumcision is the surgical removal of the skin on the tip of the penis for religious, family, personal, or preventative purposes.


Dorsal Slit Circumcision

A dorsal slit circumcision is sometimes needed in the case of phimosis or paraphimosis and is more common in adult men than children or babies.
