Circumcision

 

In normal baby boys, the foreskin is usually attached to the head of the penis at birth, and retracts gradually as a natural process, although this make take several years to occur fully. Some children can get repeated soreness or infection or the foreskin; this can cause scarring and prevents the foreskin retracting naturally. In these cases, it may be necessary to perform a circumcision.

 

Circumcision is performed as a day-case procedure under a general anaesthetic. Surgeons use dissolvable stitches and a special nerve block is used to prevent any discomfort when your child wakes up. He is able to drink as soon as he is fully awake, and most children are able to go home after a few hours.

 

At home it is advisable to keep the wound as dry as possible for 48 hours. Children can take Calpol for any discomfort, and parents are also given some anaesthetic jelly to apply to the operation site as required.Older children are usually back at school in 2 days, and back at games lessons in under 2 weeks.

 

Some parents request for their sons to have a circumcision for religious or cultural reasons. In these cases, it is our usual practice to wait until the child is out of nappies to reduce the risk of wound infection.
