Non-surgical circumcision through minimally invasive stapling
Compared to traditional methods, the stapler has the following advantages
- Aesthetically: Better appearance, compared to the appearance of scars and skin flaps that occur in the conventional suturing method.
- Shorter surgery time: Duration of 5 to 8 minutes compared to the traditional surgery, which lasts 40 to 60 minutes.
- Less postoperative bleeding and inflammation
- No external device remains in the patients: when new foreskin tissue grows, the staple will be expelled and will automatically fall off after one week, this regularly happens when 3-4 weeks are completed.
- Lower risk of wound infection.

Circumcision in México
What is Circumcision?
Circumcision is a procedure performed by urologists that involves removing a portion of the penile foreskin that covers the glans, leaving it permanently uncovered.
Circumcision is quite common for newborns in certain parts of the world, including the United States and Mexico.
Circumcision is possible after the newborn period, but it is a more complex procedure.
After circumcision, it is generally not possible to recreate the appearance of an uncircumcised penis.
Why is circumcision performed?
Circumcision is regularly performed on healthy children for cultural or religious reasons. In countries like the United States, it is performed on almost all newborns before leaving the hospital. In other continents, circumcision is a less common procedure.
When circumcision is performed for medical reasons, it is mainly done as a treatment for phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis, and genital warts.
Benefits of circumcision:
- Hygiene. Circumcision simplifies penis cleaning
- Reduced risk of urinary tract infections. The risk of urinary tract infections in males is low, but these infections are more common in uncircumcised males. Severe infections early in life can lead to kidney problems later on.
- Reduced risk of sexually transmitted infections. Circumcised men may have a lower risk of certain sexually transmitted infections, including HIV (more details on this topic here)
- Prevention of penile problems. Occasionally, the foreskin in an uncircumcised penis may be difficult or impossible to retract (phimosis). This can lead to inflammation of the foreskin or the head of the penis.
- Reduced risk of penile cancer. Although penile cancer is rare, it is less common in circumcised men. Additionally, cervical cancer is less common in the female sexual partners of circumcised men.
Contraindications of circumcision
Circumcision is contraindicated in premature infants, those with blood dyscrasias, and those with a penile anomaly that will require preservation of the foreskin for future reconstruction.
These anomalies include hypospadias, epispadias, megalourethra, webbed penis, and chordee.
How is circumcision performed?
There are several methods to perform a circumcision. In the most common method, the foreskin is pulled back from the head of the penis and secured with a plastic or metal device similar to a ring.
If the ring is made of metal, the foreskin is cut and the metal device is removed. The wound heals within 5 to 7 days.
When the ring is made of plastic, a piece of suture is tightly tied around the foreskin, which pushes the tissue into a groove in the plastic over the head of the penis. After 5 or 7 days, the plastic covering the penis falls off on its own, leaving the circumcision fully healed.
In older children, teenagers, and adults, circumcision is done with a penile block or regional anesthesia (also known as local anesthesia). The foreskin is removed and sutured over the remaining skin of the penis. Absorbable sutures are used to close the wound, which will be absorbed by the body within 7 to 10 days. The wound may take up to 3 weeks to heal.
It is normal to have swelling and the formation of a yellowish scab around the wound
Healing in teenagers and adults can take up to 3 weeks. In most cases, the patient is discharged on the same day of the surgery.
Important: Vigorous exercise should be avoided while the wound is healing. If bleeding occurs within the first 24 hours after surgery, a clean gauze should be used to apply pressure to the wound for 10 minutes.
It is possible to bathe and wash the area of the wound with a mild soap, starting on the second day after circumcision.
It is necessary to call the urologist if:
- There is new bleeding.
- There is pus draining from the surgical incision area.
- The pain becomes severe or lasts longer than expected.
- The entire penis appears red or inflamed
Technology continues to advance, and its relationship with Medicine is very close. For that reason, we always strive to provide and utilize the best options available to you.
Non-surgical circumcision with a stapler opens up a new possibility for performing a faster, safer, and aesthetically pleasing procedure in terms of healing.
The main benefits of this procedure are:
- The procedure lasts 60 minutes
- Less pain during and after the operation
- Much more aesthetic healing, surpassing laser and scalpel methods since the stapler provides a perfect mold
- Standardized operation, ensuring safety and easy control
- Fewer postoperative complications
The cost of disposable stapler circumcision can range from $15,000 pesos MXN (including follow-up consultations and close patient monitoring) until the patient is discharged when there is no risk of infection or wound opening.
The close monitoring with my patients has made this procedure very safe.
There are specific occupational activities or extreme inflammation processes that may not make the patient suitable for using staples, as they could fall off prematurely. However, we can remove the staple cartridge and perform the circumcision with the stapler, joining the skin edges with absorbable stitches of high quality. This way, the patient can obtain all the benefits of a stapler circumcision, as we have already explained.
In these cases, I provide an example of how the scar looks in a patient who underwent a stapler circumcision but with stitches to join the skin.
As a urologist, my role is to perform functional circumcisions that alleviate the patient’s issues (such as phimosis, human papillomavirus, balanitis, balanoposthitis, herpes simplex 2 on the foreskin or glans, and foul odor). Additionally, I specialize in performing aesthetic circumcisions.
