The procedure for a medical or cosmetic adult circumcision is fairly straightforward. A urologist performs the circumcision on an outpatient basis in Los Angeles, which typically takes between 30 to 45 minutes, with the option for light sedation or a local anesthetic. If an adult male decides he would like to be circumcised, it is important to consult an experienced urologist to ensure minimal complications. Urologists typically advise adult circumcision only when a man is experiencing recurrent health problems such as inflammation of the head of the penis and difficulty retracting the foreskin.
Circumcision is the procedure of removing foreskin that surrounds the end of the penis and is done for a variety of reasons that include medical, religious, cultural, and family. In some cultures and religions it is customary to undergo circumcision as a child, however due to the medical benefits, adults often have this procedure done [ ]. The Department of Surgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine has seven divisions: Cardiothoracic, GI Tumor, Endocrine and Burn, Pediatric, Plastic and Reconstructive, Transplant, Urology and Vascular (including Podiatry).
Circumcision is a simple procedure to remove the foreskin that covers the head of the penis. Steinberg Urology offers circumcision for infants, boys, teens and adult men. Though traditionally associated with newborns, circumcision can be performed on boys and men of any age.
