Brisbane Circumcision Clinic
Circumcision is usually performed for religious, cultural and hygiene reasons, but also for some medical conditions such as balanitis. phimosis, or paraphimosis (inflammation or infection of the foreskin, including complications such as inability to retract the foreskin, or resultant tightness leading to restriction of blood supply to the head of the penis).
There is an advantage to perform circumcision in patients with these medical conditions to prevent recurrence of infection, swelling and stricture.
In our clinic, Dr Wong performs all circumcision procedures and he has many years' experience treating male conditions.
Circumcision has not been shown to negatively impact sexual functions.
