Medical Insurance, payable Adult Circumcision Diagnoses

I would want to undergo circumcision and wanted to know what bills are covered by medical insurance and how much is covered by me, also healing time  Alexander

Good afternoon Alexander,

Having a beautiful adult circumcision result and never being asked “what’s that” is equally important.  As you can see by before and after photos on penisdoctor.com/before-after-adult-circumcision  we take great pride in doing the circumcision style you elect.

Most insurance companies will fund for circumcision when medically
indicated.  Some of the reasons include recurrent infections of the foreskin or glans (head).  The medical term is called balano-posthitis.  Phimosis or tightening of the distal end of the foreskin is another reason.  Tearing of the foreskin or bleeding especially with erection is another.

We will be pleased to fill out a receipt for maximum reimbursement.

Please check with your insurance company to learn more about
your benefits. Most importantly, select a doctor who you
know is experienced and has a reputation for exacting
cosmetic circumcision care.

Regarding healing time, you could return to an office environment in about 3 days.  No heavy lifting or strenuous activity for 2 to 3 weeks.  No penetrating sex for 7 to 8 weeks.  Almost all of our patients have minimal to no discomfort when seen the following day at the office.

We have done about 8000 circumcisions over the years. Hope that provides some reassurance.

With kindest regards,
Harold M. Reed, M.D.
