Brief Answer: Should be half the cost or even below Detailed Answer: Thanks for writing to health care magic. Circumcision is the surgery done for phimosis. The cost quoted to your friend is exorbitant. Itshould be less than 2000 dollars even in the best hospitals. It can be done even for 500 dollars in XXXXXXX or Nevada. Try enquiring other centers in your locality. Wishing a great day. Regards Dr Arun
