Dr. Slim’s many years of experience performing circumcisions means that he goes the extra mile to ensure that you get the best care and comfort.

Circumcision is a surgical procedure that removes the skin (foreskin) covering the head of the penis (glans). This operation is performed under local anesthesia and lasts only a few minutes. Rest assured, you or your child won’t feel a thing.

Circumcision can be performed on males as young as 2 years of age. The younger the child, the easier the operation (as they are less aware of the procedure). That is why we advise all parents wishing to have their child circumcised to begin the procedure as soon as possible.

The doctor applies an anesthetic cream on the penis with the child lying down comfortably. The cream’s effect lasts 20 to 30 minutes.

Once the skin is numb, your child will receive an injection of dorsal penile ring block, an anesthetic, into the soft tissue surrounding the penis. This combination block of short- and long-acting anesthetics allows your child to go pain-free both during and in the hours following the procedure. The anesthetic cream ensures that your child does not feel anything during the injection.

After about 10 minutes, the penis is completely desensitized, and the circumcision can take place. The circumcision itself lasts only a minute.

During the injection and circumcision, your child is given a sugar lollipop to distract him and reduce his perception of pain.

It takes 7 to 10 days for the penis to heal. After the procedure, you will receive detailed instructions to minimize your child’s discomfort and ensure optimal healing. We are also available by phone 24 hours a day to address any concerns you may have.
