Circumcision means cutting off the "foreskin” that covers the tip of a baby's penis. This can be done at all ages, from infants to adults. It depends on your own personal preference, culture, religion, and other reasons.

Benefits of Circumcision:

  • It lowers the risk of getting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases thus, in 2007, the WHO endorsed circumcision as a way to help stop the spread of HIV
  • It reduces the risk of urinary tract infection
  • It protects against penile cancer.
  • It prevents phimosis, paraphimosis, and balanoposthitis.

Risks of circumcision:

Bleeding and infection at the site of circumcision are the most common complications; however, the risk is low.

Plasti-bell DRHC

Circumcision procedure:

Using of Blastibell procedure, under local anesthesia, without bleeding fear, or infection, we apply the plastic ring with the foreskin clipped off, and leave it to dislodge within a week, with a clean completely heald wound.

Circumcision Gomco Technique:

This device is designed to crush the excess foreskin between the bell and the base plate to perform circumcision.

  • First, a skin marker is used to identify the edge of the glans.
    • Note: that the corona curves around more distally on the penile ventral aspect.
    • Marking the foreskin to guide removal later.
  • Two clamps are applied on the edge of foreskin at the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions.
    • Then a probe is inserted at the 12 o'clock position to release a clear track between the glans and the foreskin.
    • Separating the foreskin away from the glans.
  • Using a straight clamp to create a crush line on the dorsal aspect of the foreskin at the 12 o'clock position.
    • The crush line should stop about 1 cm distal to the coronal ring.
    • keep the clamp closed for a few seconds to create the crush line.
    • cutting down the middle of the crush line with scissors and preparing for insertion of the bell.
  • With the 2 o'clock and 10 o'clock two clamps still attached; the foreskin retracted to remove any additional adhesions between the foreskin and the glans.
    • Failure to remove all of the adhesions is labeled as the primary reason for a poor cosmetic outcome.
    • Inserting the bell to cover a glans (determine which size of bell will best cover the glans completely, Gomco 1.3 cm is the most commonly used size).
    • Make sure that the bell completely covers the glans and that the arms of the bell remain perpendicular to the axis of baby.
  • The next step is to place the base plate over the bell.
    • catching both the skin and mucosal layers, and carefully starting the passage of the bell and foreskin through the base plate of the clamp.
    • The base plate is lowered over the stem of the bell until it rests against the flare of the bell.
    • A clamp is used to pull the edges of foreskin through the base plate up to previous skin marker line.
    • Tighten the nut to secure the bell to the base plate
    • with this action, we are applying hemostatic force against the foreskin and we are committed to what we will remove.
    • Waiting for 5-7 minutes
    • The foreskin is cut by using the scalpel and the cutline should be where the bell meets the base plate.
    • loosen the nut.
    • Disable the device
    • Apply Pressure with normal gauze.
    • final check hemostasis (if required) with bipolar or applying pressure.
    • the foreskin should look tidy near the corona.
    • Finally, a Vaseline gauze dressing is applied.

Advantages of Gomco Circumcision:

  • Short time procedure.
  • Excellent cosmetic outcome.
  • No bell or any foreign body remaining afterwards.
  • Safe procedure: a metallic bell protects the glans penis during this procedure.

After Circumcision:

Proper hygiene is important by using the antiseptic solution and applying antibiotic cream after. It takes 5-7 days for the healing process. Minimal bleeding or swelling at first is normal.

When to consult a doctor:

Seek medical attention if there is any severe or continuous bleeding and pain, the child does not pass urine in the first 12 hours after the procedure, or any foul-smelling secretions. Almost all side effects are easily treated.
