A painless circumcision is one of the most common ways of reducing your child’s pain and
promoting healing. After your son has undergone this procedure, you’ll be taught how to prevent
infection and how to recognize warning signs. Any questions you may have after the procedure
will be answered by a doctor. Most children can return home the same day as the procedure.
You may choose to eat at your home for the first few days.
After you have been cleared to circumcise, you will need to dress minimally. Your doctor may
advise you to undress minimally if there is bleeding or a need for stitches. Any circumcision can
lead to bleeding. Your doctor will be able to advise you on the best preoperative treatment. A
doctor may prescribe an antibiotic or ointment to prevent infection. To ease any discomfort, you
can take painkillers.
A painless circumcision can be performed by a physician who is experienced in this procedure.
Dr. NaveenKella is a board-certified urologist with extensive experience in robotics surgery. To
ease pain, Dr. Naveen Kella will apply a sugar solution to the mouth, Tylenol (for parents), and a
topical sedative to keep the child comfortable throughout the procedure. After your child has
completed the procedure, your provider can clean the circumcision. The foreskin is then cut
using a clamp or plastic band. The area is then covered with a thin strip of skin. The painless
circumcision takes approximately 10 minutes.
Before your child is circumcised, it is important to carefully review the credentials and experience
of your doctor. Consider your religious and personal beliefs before making a decision. Most
circumcisions can take place quickly and safely. Even better, medical benefits continue to
accrue up until the time your child turns 18. The Canadian Pediatric Society is stating the
following:
The procedure is painless and can reduce your risk of infection. Infected males are more likely to
get STIs or urinary tract infections. Many of these problems can be prevented by circumcision,
which reduces the bacteria in your body. A female partner can also help reduce your chances of
contracting HIV. The procedure is safe and painless as long as both parents are in agreement.
Circumcision offers many benefits. One of the benefits is that circumcision significantly reduces
the risk for HIV infection. Penis sores can result from infections that are transmitted by the
foreskin through sex. Infections like Chlamydia can lead infertility or pelvic inflammatory
diseases, as well as to an ectopic baby. Circumcision also decreases the likelihood of
contracting a painful disease.
The technique is still relatively young, but it is already being used to circumcise over 1,200 men
in Rwanda. The WHO has approved PrePex devices in Zimbabwe. Both countries have so far
been successful in their trials that people are lined up to get it. The Edarp clinic, Kenya,
circumcises approximately fifteen to twenty men per day. The technology makes this process
painless and quick.
In 2011, a study evaluated the ideal age to perform neonatal circumcision. Over a three-year
period, 583 neonates were included in the study. The penile ring was injected with a 1%
lignocaine solution. The children were then given formula or 20% sucrose solution ad-libitum.
After the penis was removed the children were given formula milk or 20% sucrose solution as a

soothing fluid. The Neonatal/Infant Pain Scale was used to measure pain. A score of 2 was
considered painless circumcision.
The procedure removes the foreskin from the penis. It has many benefits. It improves a
childâ€TMs sexual hygiene and decreases the likelihood of developing infections. It also reduces
the risk of certain diseases and conditions over a lifetime. Most children don’t need to be
circumcised. However, some parents may choose to do this for religious or cultural reasons.
This is not a mandatory procedure.
