About Circumcision

Circumcision is an optional surgery to remove the male foreskin. It is a part of religious, health benefits and cultural reasons. 
The circumcision surgery is simple. Our specialist surgoens will free the foreskin from the head of the penis and, in newborns, clip it off in a procedure that only takes a few minutes. In adults, they will remove the foreskin with a scalpel, and it takes around 30 minutes.

Benefits of Circumcision

  • lower risk of a baby getting a urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • lower risk of men getting sexually transmissible infections
  • easier genital hygiene
  • lower risk of penile cancer

Risks & Complications

  • Complications are rare with our experienced specialists who daily circumcise 20+ infants and children
  • Rare complications can happen if too much skin is removed
  • bleeding or infection in the area and some scarring are the least common risks of circumcision

Circumcision Methods

At Fathi Emara Polyclinic, we use advanced techniques for the least traumatic circumcision process. After careful assessment, the doctor identifies if the procedure can be done for the patient and chooses the mode of anesthesia. 

For newborn patients, local anesthetic cream will be applied for 20 min. Then the doctor will sterilize the treating area, gently pull the foreskin and cut it with a special tool that doesn’t cause any bleeding. 

For children above 6months, the procedure is done under local anesthesia. For elder children (5years old and above) and adults, the procedure is done under general anesthesia in Operation Theatre. 

What People Usually Ask About Circumcision

Circumcision for new born is less painful and faster to recover. Therefore, it is advised to do the circumcision at the first month of baby

Adult circumcision is less common than children. The recovery time and tissue trauma is more for adults. However, it is highly advised to do circumcision for health benefits and to avoid medical compications such as phimosis, paraphimosis and balanitis.

Newborn circumcision is considerably painless. For children above 6 months old, it is associated with more emotional trauma and longer recovery time (7-10 days). The procedure itself is painless due to local anesthesia. Our doctors usually prescribe oral pain killers for next 3-4 days homecare.

The procedure takes only 5minutes for infants and maximum 30 min for adults.

Some insurance companies have policies to cover newborn circumcision. This information is shared in your network policy. For elder children and adults, the procedure is self paid.

The price for newborn circumcision is 1,000 AED. For children above 2 years, 1,500 – 4,000AED.
