Is the procedure painful?

Is the procedure painful?

Circumcision should be a pain free procedure, as long as the local anaesthetic has been administered correctly. We do get a few horror stories of procedures being done during which the child has felt the pain and the whole experience of both parents and child has been awful.  You can rest assure that your child will not be in any form of pain during the procedure. The only thing to warn you would be that children in the age group 1 – 5 years of age can be difficult to circumcise, as they are at an age where they are weary of strangers and won’t let anyone go near them. This age group of patients do pose a challenge for us – nevertheless, we do cater for them as well.
