Apart from personal reasons, various medical conditions also require circumcision as a treatment. Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin of the reproductive organ doesn't retract on its own. Without circumcisions, it may lead to obstruction in urination, sexual incompetence and infertility.
While it occurs naturally, it can also be caused by forceful retraction of the foreskin. In some cases, it can even cause inflammation, infection on the foreskin or pain during urination. Therefore, treatment may depend on the severity of the issue and may include surgical circumcision.
A physical exam is mandatory to evaluate the need for circumcision. Our doctor will ask the patient about their medical history. To assess the risk of complications, they may also recommend urine tests to check for bacteria and to check blood sugar in diabetic patients. After the diagnosis, the doctor may advise several treatment options, including surgical circumcision.
Laser treatment is the most-effective and minimally invasive procedure to perform circumcision. It is safer than conventional surgical procedure and is especially beneficial for infants and patients who suffer from blood-related issues.
While doctors recommend circumcision for personal reasons, it should only be performed under expert supervision. At Yashoda, our doctors perform laser circumcision, which takes only 15 to 20 minutes. It doesn’t require an incision, leaves no scar, blood and heals much faster.
To prepare for surgery, take good care of your health and try to learn as much as you can about the procedure. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a successful procedure and heal faster with a smooth recovery.
Depending upon the procedure and the patient's health, our surgeons may recommend some patients to medications. However, these medications are prescribed after a thorough evaluation of their medical history and overall health. Therefore, you need to inform the doctor about your allergies and previous medical conditions in advance
Recovery time after the surgery may vary from one patient to another. Usually, it depends on several factors, such as the patient's age, the type of surgery and the adversity of the problem that is being addressed during the surgery. Therefore, it is important to talk to your doctor about the same prior to your surgery.
