Frequently Asked Question


What is Circumcision?

The surgical removal of the skin covering the top of the penis is known as Circumcision. This procedure is common for newborn boys in few parts of the world. Circumcision can be done at any age period but after the newborn period passes the procedure becomes more complex to perform. Few religions consider Circumcision a ritual and can also be a matter of family tradition, preventive health care and or personal hygiene. Whereas, for others, the procedure is disfiguring and unnecessary.


What is the right time for Circumcision?

Circumcision can be done at any period of time but it is ideal to do after a few days the baby is born. Circumcision becomes riskier and complex for babies, children, and men.


How is Circumcision done?

The foreskin is freed from the head of the penis and the excess foreskin is clipped off during Circumcision. The procedure generally lasts 5 to 10 minutes if done on a newborn baby. However, it may take an hour to complete in adult men. The incisions of Circumcision usually heal in 5 to 7 days.


Is Circumcision important?

The circumcision used for medical and health reasons still remains the topic of debate. The health benefits of Circumcision in newborn males outweigh the risk but still, the benefits are not that great to advise circumcision universally. To treat Phimosis a condition where the foreskin is unable to retract or to treat the infection in the penis, circumcision is recommended in older boys and men. The parents of the newborn male baby should consult the doctor about the advantages and disadvantages of the Circumcision.

  1. Personal preferences
