Circumcision is the surgical removal of all or part of the foreskin (skin covering the head of the penis). The decision to be circumcised is very personal and should only be made after careful consideration. We encourage you to discuss any questions or concerns with your health-care provider.

Reasons for circumcision generally fall into three broad groups:

  • To treat a medical condition
  • To prevent future disease
  • To fulfill a religious/cultural tradition

What is the Method?

There are many different techniques to perform circumcisions. The options will be discussed with the patient/family during the consultation. The aim is to have a successful procedure while keeping the patient as comfortable as possible. The methods offered by Dr Bakshi are:

Plastic ring:

The Plastic Ring is an easy, quick, and safe method for circumcision. It is a simple and well tested method that has been successfully used for decades. The ring is a single use device.

The Shang ring slightly differs as this method consists of two concentric plastic rings: the inner ring and the outer ring, and is again a single use device. This process is safe, simple, and effective.
