• WHAT IS CIRCUMCISION?

    Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, which is a fold of skin that covers the tip of the penis.
    Circumcision has been performed on boys for several thousands of years.

  • WILL THE PROCEDURE HURT MY BABY?

    While every effort is made to minimize pain, the baby might experience some discomfort briefly during the procedure. This can be minimized through use of a combination of local anaesthetic cream and nerve block.
    Paracetamol and oral sucrose solution can also be used.

  • HOW LONG WILL THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

    The actual procedure is very quick and will take less than a minute.
    We require patients to arrive one hour before the procedure to ensure correct preparation, and remain in the hospital for 45 minutes afterward.

  • HOW LONG UNTIL THE WOULD IS FULLY HEALED?

    Most healing will happen within the first three or four days with full recovery expected after two weeks of the procedure.

  • WILL MY BABY BE UNSETTLED AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

    It is common for babies to be mildly unsettled for the first 24 hours. We recommend keeping your baby tightly swaddled during this time to minimize movement for best recovery.

  • WHEN CAN I BATHE MY BABY?

    It is best to avoid bathing your baby for five days post-procedure – this is to ensure optimum healing. During this time it is fine to clean your baby with a wet wipe.

  • DO I REQUIRE A REFERRAL?

    A referral is not required by your GP.
