Will my child be awake?
We use a local anaesthetic cream and injection to numb the penis. This means that the patient is not put to sleep.
Pre-operative preparation for the procedure is very important. You will be told about pain killer medicines and topical anaesthetic cream that will be administered to your son. The pain control medication will help to control pain after the procedure once the anaesthetic effect is worn off. A local anaesthetic cream applied at the base of the penis in a ring fashion makes the skin of that area numb. This helps in reducing the discomfort of needle prick of local anaesthetic injection at the beginning of the procedure. After a few minutes of injection of local anaesthesia the whole skin of penis becomes numb from the base to the tip of the penis.
Expect to spend about two hours at the clinic, though it can be longer. The actual procedure time depends on the technique chosen and age of the patient. Ring method (Circumplast/Plastibell) takes only 5-7 minutes after infiltration of local anaesthetic. Sleeve resection method (cut and stitch) takes 30–60 minutes depending on the age of the patient (child or adult) after infiltration of local anaesthetic.
Patients will firstly be assessed to ensure that he is well. The doctor will take some details about the patient and about his health. If the doctor thinks that patient is not suitable; a full explanation will be given as to why and alternative arrangements will be suggested. Doctor will discuss with you about the procedure and aftercare.
We would also wish to observe the patient for half an hour after the circumcision to ensure that the procedure has been successful without any acute complications like bleeding.
Every baby and child is different. We have had babies and children who have not cried for the injection and have remained quiet during the entire circumcision procedure. Other babies and children start crying as soon as they are undressed and put on the bed.
One way to calm and settle babies and very young children is to give them a bottle of sugary water/milk to drink during the injection and the circumcision procedure. We strongly advise this for all babies, infants and toddlers, even if they are breast-fed.
We encourage parents to stay in the operating room during the entire circumcision procedure. Sometimes other family members, like grandparents and aunts, remain with the child whilst the parents wait outside.
