What type of Circumcision technique do you use (free hand or clamp)

What type of adult circumcision surgical technique do you use. Free-hand – sleeve dissection or clamp?


Hi Curt,

Thank you for visiting our web-site  penisdoctor.com.  We use the free-hand – sleeve technique for adult circumcision and it provides for tolerances within 1 to 2 mm.  Very difficult to say what is going on under a clamp until the cut is made.  Then might be too late.  We can pre-mark your penis, if you wish to be sure the incision lines are in accordance with your conceptualization.  You will also have a hand held mirror in the operating room to confirm, the circumcision is proceeding in accordance with your wishes.
