Circumcision Surgery for Adult Men
Adult Circumcision is performed at the Intramed Medical Centre. No hospital visit or doctor’s referral is required. The procedure described here for adult men is essentially the same as provided for teenage boys. Our clinic offers circumcision for men with the virtually painless Pollock Technique™.
With our combination of local anaesthetic, our quick surgical technique, and our use of skin glue, we provide the most comfortable adult circumcision procedure available in Canada, or anywhere in the world.
Men also have the option of nitrous oxide sedation for maximum comfort and relaxation during the procedure.
- After receiving local anesthetic to the genital area, the circumcision is performed in a completely painless manner. The whole procedure is done in about 5 minutes.
- Patients are kept for observation for 2-3 hours post-operatively. You will have a private recovery room, including snacks and beverages supplied for your comfort.
- Follow-up is required the next day and 3 days after the operation for dressing changes, etc. Your doctor will be closely following your healing and recovery after circumcision as an adult.
- Somebody with a sedentary job can return to work within 48 hours. Surgery and follow-up visits are done in the comfort and privacy of Intramed Medical Centre. All supplies, dressings, analgesia, sick certificates, etc. are supplied by Intramed at no extra cost.
- You will have access to Dr. Crouse’s 24 hour phone to get quick answers any concerns that you may have.
Please go ahead and request a consultation appointment with Dr. Crouse if you are considering getting circumcised at an adult age. Our clinic is a leading resource for adult and teen circumcision in Alberta.
Adult Circumcision, Right Here in Calgary
There are a number of reasons why men may choose to get circumcised at an adult age. Some require circumcision as a cure for conditions like phimosis (an overly tight foreskin) while others choose circumcision for cosmetic and personal reasons. Whatever the reason for your choice to have circumcision later in life, we will be pleased to consult with you and schedule a surgery at your convenience.
With our skin glue closure method, in addition to the standard suture technique, we are able to obtain an improved cosmetic outcome without the typical multiple suture track marks in the skin. Adult circumcision procedures in our clinic offer optimal results with the least discomfort.
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation is available for men who may be feeling anxious about the procedure. Nitrous sedation will increase relaxation without putting the patient to sleep, and it wears off quickly.
