Who can get a circumcision?
We do circumcisions on babies less than 1 month old and kids and adults over the age of 13.
Why have a circumcision done?
Well there are a lot of good reasons!
1. Cosmetic – many patients including their spouses find the circumcised penis cosmetically more attractive
2. Prevention of STDs – the risk of STDs including HIV is much less with circumcision
3. Prevention or treatment of phimosis – a condition where the foreskin will not go back
4. Improved hygiene
5. Reduced chance of carrying HPV – the virus that causes cervical cancer in females
