circumcision

Q | the circumcision procedure?

A | The procedure is carried under general or local block regional anaesthesia in the operating theatre. The part of the foreskin to be removed is marked out and the foreskin is gently pulled forward and trimmed away. The edges are closed using dissolvable stitches. A local anaesthetic is usually given just before the general anaesthetic wears off so there is less pain for a few hours after the operation.
