Non-scalpel Vasectomy ; Adult Circumcision

Can you do a Non Scalpel Vasectomy and an Adult Circumcision at the same time. And is there a non-scalpel circumcision, trying to find the least pain!!

Dear Gus,  Yes we can do a non-scalpel vasectomy and circumcision at the same time.  There are plastic devices which are like clamps, used in 3rd world countries, and you
foreskin and bell of the clamp fall off a few days later.  We do not do this type of circumcision here, because our patients are looking for a specific result and the “bell” hides
that.  You will not have any pain when we do a circumcision at the Reed Centre and the long acting anesthesia lasts for about 3 to 4 hours.  Most patients get along with Tylenol, Ultram, or Vicodin.

No aspirin, vitamin E, fish oil, Advil or Motrin for 2 weeks before Adult Circumcison and Non-scalpel Vasectomy as these products potentiate bleeding.
