What is a circumcision procedure?
Circumcision is very simply the removal of foreskin from the glans.
The propensity of circumcision varies around the world and is mostly associated with religious affiliation or culture. In the case of circumcision for religious or cultural reasons, most circumcisions are performed during infancy or early adolescence. Religious male circumcision is a requirement for both Muslims and Jews in particular. It is also widely practiced by certain Christian churches in Africa.
Why would you have a circumcision?
As circumcision is not considered a medical requirement in the UK, the NHS typically does not provide this service so with this in mind, we designed our service to professional, efficient and clinically safe.
Based at our modern, clean and CQC-compliant facilities and our experienced surgeons offer circumcisions based on cultural and religious reasons for males in five age groups:
- Up to 12 months
- 12 months to 18 months
- 18 months to 3 years
- 4 - 11 years
- 12 years and over (including adults)
However, adult males are more likely to be circumcised for medical conditions, including:
- Phimosis – this is the medical term for when the foreskin is too tight and unable to retract over the head of the penis
- Paraphimosis – this occurs when the foreskin is retracted from the head of the penis and is unable to return to its usual position
- Acute balanoposthitis – this is caused by an infection and can cause discomfort, especially in persistent cases.
