BREAKING NEWS: WE HAVE ACHIEVED CARE QUALITY COMMISSION (CQC) STATUS AND WE ARE A REGISTERED CQC CLINIC!!! Click here for more information.
Male circumcision is performed for religious, cultural, health and hygiene purposes.
Male circumcision is a minor Urology surgical procedure and should only be performed by a qualified Surgeon. For this reason, we are a Urology led Consultant Surgeon service. By choosing us, you are assuring quality. Our Surgeon led services are competitive and start from £130, please see our Pricing and Bookings page for our pricelist.
Unlike other circumcision clinics in the North, Midlands and much of the UK who employ General Practitioners (GP) or non-urologists surgeons to carry out circumcisions. We at Qualified Circumcision Clinic – QCC, have our own fully qualified NHS surgical team of Consultant Urologist. Surgeons who have had several years of rigorous, structured and assessed training by some of the best teaching NHS hospitals in the country, no other non-Urology Surgeon or GP can claim this as they have not undergone this level of training in circumcision. Our experienced surgical team have been performing and teaching both minor and major urology surgical procedures for at least 10 years or more, this includes circumcision. Urologists Surgeons are the specialists in circumcision and as such any circumcisions performed in hospitals for health or cosmetic reasons are performed by surgeon Urologists. This is why at Qualified Circumcision Clinic – QCC, are the ONLY dedicated Urology led circumcision clinic in the country and only allow Consultant Urologist Surgeons to perform circumcisions on our patients, upholding our commitment to providing the highest standards of quality, care and value to our patients.
Our Consultant Surgeons are experienced and qualified in Urology and as a result we can provide a more comprehensive circumcision service extending to all male age groups, our procedures range from the following:
1. The most commonly used technique, worldwide, in the under 2 age group is the Plastibell ring method. This includes the use of a plastic device on the penile skin, which is left on after the foreskin has been cut off. The Plastibell falls off approximately 3-10 days after the procedure and the skin heals over the next 7 days. In older boys and men, a Plastibell is not used and an Open method is preferred which utilises glue or stitches to approximate the skin.
2. An alternative technique in the under 2 age group involves the use of a Circumplast ring method, which is also a plastic ring but it has multiple grooves for placing the suture. The ring takes 3-10 days to fall off and the skin heals over the next seven days. The main benefit of the Circumplast to the Plastibell is that it reduces the small risk of the plastic device moving in towards the penis. It is also considered to give a better cosmetic appearance. In older boys and men, a Circumplast is not used and an Open method is preferred which utilises glue or stitches to approximate the skin.
3. Open/Traditional Surgery is a technique which requires more surgical skill and takes longer to perform. We offer this service to adults, older children (above the age of 2 years) and to babies if parents prefer. The open method is used to cut the skin away and either glue or suture the skin together. There is no ring which needs to fall off and the sutures dissolve as the skin heals over two weeks to four weeks.
4. We also provide a Revision Consult and Corrective Surgery for those (patients and parents) who are not happy with a previous circumcision that was performed elsewhere.
All circumcisions should be performed by a qualified and experienced Urologist Surgeon as this will lower the risk of complications. Procedures should be performed in a clean CQC approved minor operations room. Local anaesthetic is given to each patient to remove any pain associated with the procedure and lasts up to six hours. We do not use general anaesthetic as there is a risk associated with intubation and chest infection.
|“As a Dr, I would only get my child circumcised by a Urologist. That’s why as a GP I only recommend that all my patients and colleagues come here. . Urologist Surgeons are THE most qualified professionals to perform circumcisions. They have successfully completed several years of training under the NHS and have performed countless circumcisions for the hospitals they work in. Not only are they fully trained in this area but they have intricate knowledge of this organ. For instance, they know medically when not to perform a circumcision and they know how much skin to remove without causing the penis to grow small or tight etc. At the end of the day, circumcision is a Urological surgery and if hospital’s only allow urologist surgeons to perform circumcisions then why should we expect anything less for ourselves or our dear children?” See more patient testimonials: “What Adult Patients and Parents Say About Us”|
