It is performed for various reasons, including medical and cultural reasons. The procedure can be done on children or adults, and it is typically performed by a healthcare professional, such as a urologist or paediatric surgeon, in a sterile environment.
Our urologists only perform circumcision when there is an indicated medical reason. They do not perform cosmetic or cultural circumcision.
It is important to note that circumcision is a personal decision, and the medical necessity or preference for circumcision can vary among individuals and cultures. The decision for circumcision and its related conditions should be discussed with a healthcare professional who can provide appropriate guidance and recommendations based on individual circumstances.
All of our urologists have significant experience performing circumcision surgery. However, some of our specialists have longer waiting times than others due to their various sub-specialised areas of expertise in specific procedures, or their commitment to public practice. If you are unsure which specialists to see, or want to ensure the shortest waiting time, please contact us for a recommendation.
