We can clearly state that circumcision is the surgical removal of the skin covering the extreme end of a penis. Virtually all countries in the world today perform circumcision for new born babies.
A circumcision doctor could be anyone from a pediatrician, obstetrician, family health care doctor, surgeon,or a urologist.
Individuals not medically oriented see circumcision as a religious ritual or as a family tradition, this depends on background or environment they are from.
Medical Benefits of Circumcision
Medical practitioners like circumcision doctors create awareness by telling people that circumcision is one of the various ways of keeping personal hygiene. Other health benefits of circumcision are:
• It reduces the risk of penile cancer
• It can also prevent problems that can affect the penis
• The chance of having sexually transmitted infections can also be reduced by just performing circumcision
• It can also have a huge impact on decreasing the risk of getting a urinary tract infection
Consent is Needed before a Circumcision Doctor Performs the Operation
The professional doctor that is said to perform the circumcision must first carefully explain the risks and benefits of the procedure in a clear language to whoever is considering doing the operation. Once that is done, the person in need of circumcision must present a written consent before the procedure can be continued. If this is not provided by the individual or the parents of the boy to be circumcised, the circumcision doctor won’t be able to go on with the procedure because it is not legally right.
The Expected Things to Happen During Circumcision
Circumcision is commonly done on infants within 10 days after they are delivered from the womb of their respective mothers. Before the circumcision doctor performs anything, the penis of any male child to undergo the procedure must have been kept neat and clean. For convenience and easy performing of the operation, the baby will be made to lie on his back with both arms and legs restrained.
An Anesthetic is the next thing to be injected or applied as a cream to the penis of the male child involved in the circumcision procedure. Once this is efficiently done, the next thing is to attach a special clamp or a plastic ring to the penis of the child under the process of circumcision so that the foreskin can be easily and perfectly removed.
That is not all, tropical antibiotic or any other important ornaments needed for this circumcision procedure will also be applied to the penis of the baby involved.
The procedure during circumcision we have systematically explained above for new born babies can also be done for young boys older than that. This can also be performed in a similar way on adults too, they are not left out of this.
The Things to Expect and to be Done After the Circumcision Procedure
The circumcision done on a new born baby is expected to take about 7 – 10 days before the penis gets healed. The extreme end of the penis is most likely to cause pains at first to the baby but through time the discomfort goes gradually. You could expect the penis to look red, swollen or bruised pending the full healing period.…
