Stapler Circumcision- Painless Three minutes Procedure
Circumcision has been one of the oldest surgical procedures performed for various reasons including but not limited to religion and ethnicity. The other common reasons warranting Circumcision could be cosmetic, infections, trauma, sexual beliefs and also partner induced. Traditional Circumcision has been largely given up due to pain and trauma associated with it .
Stapler Circumcision is a new technique that was introduced by a company called ZSR biomedical and till today goes by the nick name of ZSR stapler Circumcision.
The stapler device consists of a disposable use and throw cutting and stapling device which cuts the foreskin circumferential and applies two rows of staples which falloff after about 2-3 weeks. The procedure can be done under Local anaesthesia in under 5 minutes with the patient returning to work in 6 hours in most centers. The beauty of the technique lies in its simplicity. The device is designed in such a way that the skin is not crushed but rather cut in one single strike . It is the crushing of the skin edges and the application of sutures that normally produce pain and swelling in the would postoperatively. However this is completely done away with this fantastic technique. Though a local penile block will suffice for this procedure, some people prefer general or regional ( spinal ) anaesthesia.
