Circumcision Surgery in Kondapur, Hyderabad

The foreskin is the piece of skin that covers the head of the penis. Circumcision is a surgery performed to remove the foreskin. This is more common in babies. They undergo circumcision after a week of their birth.

Circumcision is done for one of the following reasons:

  • Religious ritual: It is a cultural ritual for most of the Jewish and Islamic population
  • Family tradition
  • Medical care: It is also done if there is retraction trouble of the foreskin over the glans
  • Personal Hygiene: In part of Africa, circumcision is done to prevent the risk of sexually transmitted diseases.

How Is Circumcision performed?

Before the surgery, the baby is placed on its back. The penis is cleaned. And the surgeon gives anaesthesia in the form of an injection or cream. This ensures that the baby does not feel any pain.

During the surgery at Apollo Kondapur, a clam or ring is placed on the penis. The surgeon separates the foreskin from the glans of the penis. He then uses a scalpel to remove the foreskin.

This surgery takes place for about 10-15 minutes in babies. However, in men, the surgery takes place for about an hour.

After the circumcision, the area is washed gently with warm water. A bandage with antibiotic ointment is put each time the diaper is changed.

It normally takes about a week to heal completely. Initially, there may be swelling, redness or bleeding. However, if these persist for more than a week, it is recommended to see a doctor.

It is also recommended to show your baby to the doctor if your baby does not wet the diaper after 12 hours of the circumcision.
