Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

This condition that you are mentioning may Phimosis, but physical examination has to be done to confirm it.

Phimosis can be treated with a minor surgery called circumcision.

People who are very apprehensive of the surgery, in some cases, some doctors have tried the following method (in some it works):

They apply neomycin-H (containing neomycin and hydrocortisone) through penile orifice, then massage the glans with hand gently. This makes the area lubricated. Then the individual gradually and slowly try to retract once daily. This can better be discussed with a general surgeon or pediatric surgeon.

Considering your age and description, to my mind one can go for safely circumcision, a very easy and simple surgery

Hope this addresses your concern.

Answers are as below, Mr XXXXXXX

1. The operation of circumcision wont affect deep penetration. It should be like normal

2. No problem with erection; because erection depends on blood flow to penile blood vessels, this has nothing to do with foreskin removal

3. People who are very very reluctant for operation, they try the ointment with mixed result. It would be a good idea to discus this issue with your doctor, clearly

Wish you good luck

Hi Sir i want to know about various techniques of circumcision i.e. Dorsal slit , Shang Ring Method, and prepex method by WHO that can be possible in india or nt

The type of technique to be followed will be decided upon examination of the local area, and preference and competence of the surgeon. In India, it is quite possible, undoubtedly.

As I had already mentioned, this is one of the minor surgery for the surgeon with good results. Urologist are the expert in this area next to general surgeon

That being said, I am not the competent person to describe the technique details that you are interested to know. Rather you can discuss this with your surgeon

Hope this helps you

Wish you good luck!!
