Local or general anesthesia for my upcoming circumcision with Dr. Reed

In our practice 99+% of our patients are done under local and do quite well.

Here’s what we do. If you need a tranquilizer, this can be prescribed in advance
or even given IV while you’ll on the table. This is seldom necessary. A spouse or

loved one is always welcome in the operating room to help comfort and distract you

while we are setting up and the procedure is in progress.

Next you’ll be injected in the butt with an antibiotic. A gentle simultaneous smack will mask
the needle stick. If for any reason an IV is required, the antibiotic can be given intravenously.

Then the nurse will place some numbing cream at the base of your penis, so you won’t
feel any needle sticks. This is left on for 15 to 20 minutes before local is injected. The
whole approach is like a seductive dance. We want you to leave our office saying “what
was I worried about, it was so easy.”

If you request the services of an anesthetist, they’re available. Please give us some advance notice.

Hoping this is of help,
