Laser Circumcision at Medico Global Clinic
Medico Global’s Laser Circumcision is a surgery where a doctor removes excess foreskin from the penis with a surgical cautery laser. The use of a cautery laser in surgery confers a number of advantages, including reduced bleeding, neater wound sites, and faster healing. Lasers cauterize as they cut, and the patient should experience minimal bleeding only. After the surgery, a few dissolvable stitches are necessary to hold the tissue in place while it heals.
Medico Global Clinic uses state of the art, hygienic equipment plus high-end absorbable sutures to leave minimal scarring.

It’s also a treatment for pathologic phimosis and urinary tract infection.
Circumcision is a medical procedure that involves removing the foreskin of the penis. The laser cautery is used to make precise incisions, and it may result in less bleeding, swelling, and pain compared to traditional circumcision methods.
The decision to circumcise a child, including a young boy, is a personal and often cultural or religious choice that should be made with the child's parents or guardians after considering the potential risks and benefits.
Some people believe that circumcision has health benefits, such as reducing the risk of urinary tract infections, penile cancer, and sexually transmitted infections.
There are also risks associated with circumcision, including bleeding, infection, and, in rare cases, damage to the penis.
It's important to choose a qualified and experienced medical professional to perform the procedure and to follow all post-procedure care instructions to minimize these risks.
Ultimately, the decision to circumcise a young boy should be made based on the child's and family's individual circumstances, beliefs, and values.

The laser cautery is used to make precise incisions, and it may result in less bleeding, swelling, and pain compared to traditional circumcision methods. Additionally, some studies suggest that laser cautery circumcision may have a faster healing time compared to using scalpel methods.

Is laser circumcision pain free?
While laser circumcision may be associated with less bleeding and potentially faster healing compared to traditional methods, it does not necessarily mean it is entirely pain-free. Pain experiences can vary among individuals, and factors such as pain tolerance, individual sensitivity, and the specific circumstances of the procedure can influence the level of discomfort.
During a laser circumcision, local anesthesia is administered to numb the area and minimize pain during the procedure. However, some discomfort or pain may still be experienced during the recovery period as the anesthesia wears off and the healing process begins.
How to clean the circumcision wound?
Wound cleaning is performed in the morning and before bedtime, and this process is generally carried out at home. Personalized instructions on wound care, along with other guidance, will be provided by your attending doctor.
