Circumcision is a quick and simple surgical procedure that involves the removal of the foreskin covering the glans (head) of the penis. This minimally invasive procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and often allows for same-day discharge.
Dr. Pollock, originator of the Pollock Technique™ circumcision, has published a study that demonstrates the efficacy of a pain management strategy. Many newborns fall asleep throughout the brief procedure. Most infants feel very little or no pain.
There are various cultural, personal, and cosmetic benefits that can drive men to pursue adult circumcision, including improved hygiene, heightened sexual sensation, cosmetic appeal, and the opportunity to deepen cultural or religious roots.
