Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, medically termed as prepuce, which covers the tip of the penis. This is performed for cultural, religious, or health reasons.
For some countries, especially in the Middle East, it is required by religion for Muslim men to be circumcised. For other countries, like the Philippines, it is part of the people’s culture, as a form of initiation of boys to adulthood.
Health reasons that require this procedure include phimosis or tight foreskin, Balanitis Xerotica Obliterans, a chronic and progressive inflammatory disorder of the foreskin, or paraphimosis, an emergency situation where the retracted foreskin of an uncircumcised male cannot be returned to its anatomical position. Additionally, a circumcised penis is easier to clean.
In our Dubai Healthcare City Clinic, Doctors Maurizio and Roberto Viel perform circumcision under IV sedation, which requires the presence of an anaesthetist. During the procedure, you will be pain free and will only take about an hour to finish. You will be able to go home on the same day of the procedure.
