Common Questions

How should we prepare for the procedure?

We will speak with you to confirm on how to prepare for the circumcision. For infants we recommend feeding your son before coming in for the procedure, and bringing along extra nappies.

We will also have you give him infant paracetemol. This will be reviewed with you in detail, and you can read more about the steps before your boy’s circumcision on the Infant Circumcision page.

What circumcision method is used at your clinic?

At the Gentle Procedures Clinic, we practice the Pollock Technique™, proven effective in over 50,000 procedures. We use this technique because it provides a quick and virtually painless experience for the child and has world leading positive outcomes.

We are offering circumcision for older boys and men using the same safe technique. For boys over 10, adolescent and adult circumcision please contact us today.

For full detail on our circumcision method using the Pollock Technique™ please see the Circumcision Method page.

Dr. Plaut is the only certified provider of Pollock Technique™ circumcision in London.

Can we choose the date and time for the circumcision procedure?

Yes. Doctor Plaut is generally available on relatively short notice and has a regular schedule that permits quick access to services, especially for infant circumcision.

Not all days are available every week, but we will likely be able to find a time that is convenient for you.

What are the benefits and costs of circumcision?

Nhs circumcision Circumcision has been the topic of debate for many decades. Research and scientific studies indicate that there are a number of medical benefits that result from this procedure.

Circumcision benefits include:

  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was reduced by 53% to 60%.
  • Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) was reduced by 28% to 34%.
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) was reduced by 32% to 35%.
  • Among female partners of circumcised men, bacterial vaginosis was reduced by 40% and Trichomonas vaginalis infection was reduced by 48%. As many of these studies were done in developing countries, it is possible that the protective effects of circumcision may be lower in the UK.

Additional health benefits of circumcision include the following:

  • Lower risk of getting cancer of the penis, a rare type of cancer.
  • Lower risk of urinary tract infections during the first year of life. Urinary tract infections during the first year of life can be serious and may lead to hospitalization. An uncircumcised baby boy has a 1 in 100 chance of getting a urinary tract infection during the first year of life, compared with a 1 in 1000 chance for a circumcised baby boy.
  • Prevention of foreskin infections.
  • Prevention of phimosis, a painful condition in which the foreskin retracts. Circumcised males do not get this condition.
  • Easier genital hygiene.
  • Studies now show that circumcision may also significantly reduce Prostate Cancer

Because studies have indicated a link between circumcisions and improved health and lower incidence of serious, sometimes deadly diseases, demand for infant circumcision has increased.

nhs pay for circumcision?

Does NHS pay for circumcision?

In the UK, routine or non-therapeutic circumcision is not done under the NHS. The only cases that would qualify would be where circumcision is medically necessary in the opinion of a urologist.

This means that virtually all infant circumcision is paid privately, as well as the great majority of circumcision procedures done for boys and adult men.
