What is Stapler Circumcision?
Stapler circumcision is an advanced and modern technique to surgically remove the foreskin from the penis. Foreskin is a layer of skin that covers the tip and head of the penis. It is an outpatient procedure and therefore, you can go home the same day as the surgery.
This procedure is undergone for medical conditions that affect the penis. This includes diseases like phimosis (in which the foreskin of the penis cannot be retracted), balanoposthitis (inflammation of the head of the glans and the foreskin), penile cancer, etc. Many men may also undergo circumcision for religious reasons.
Stapler circumcision is safer and more efficient than traditional circumcision surgery, with a faster recovery time. It can be performed on babies, adolescents, young adults and older men.
Circumcision surgery takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get completed. It remains the same for infants and adults.
- Administration of anaesthesia:
You will be given anaesthesia as discussed with your surgeon before the procedure. In infants less than one year of age, anaesthesia is usually avoided.
- Disinfecting the surgical area:
Once you are sedated the surgical area is disinfected. An incision is then made to affix the stapler.
- Fixing the staplers:
The surgeon attaches the stapler to the incisions on the penis. It needs to be fixed properly to avoid tearing the foreskin, incomplete removal of the foreskin and injury to the glans.
- The surgeon fires the stapler:
The stapler removes the foreskin in one quick motion. At the same time, the incisions are sealed with a silicone ring and non-absorbable staples. The stapler is in place for 3 minutes after it is fired. This ensures that the foreskin is completely removed and prevents the compression of the blood vessels.
- The removal of the device:
The device is removed by unscrewing it from the penis. The penis is then cleaned and dressed using a compression bandage.
You will then be moved to a recovery room for observation.
Stapler circumcision has several advantages over traditional circumcision procedures. It decreases the risk of penile diseases and also improves hygiene. This surgical procedure has the following benefits:
- Reduced injury to the tissue and less blood loss.
- Shorter time for the surgery.
- Less complications
- Faster recovery time than conventional circumcision
- The procedure can be performed on both children and adults
