Baby Circumcision

We help parents with their newborn, infant, toddler and 10 years + children’s circumcision procedure.

First Consultation:

We generally require a patient to come and see us for an initial consultation unless traveling in from a long distance. If you are traveling in from elsewhere other than Adelaide please call the reception staff and let them know. We would preferably do a phone consult first and make an assessment if we can offer you a procedure the same day you come in to see us the first time. At our first meeting, we go through the different options of circumcision techniques. For infants, we use the Plastibell Method which is the prevalent method of circumcision for infants globally. There might be other options available or preferable depending on the age of the child. The method and anesthetic technique are discussed. The risks, benefits, and xcosts involved are explained. Informed consent is taken from the parents/ guardians. We then schedule the procedure for you. The scheduling is subject to the availability of appointments, equipment, and theatre room facilities. However generally a procedure can be scheduled within a week of the initial consultation


We want to make the process as simple and painless for your child as possible. We use a variety of different circumcision methods, which take 15-20 minutes for infants and are proven to be the most reliable and comfortable for the infant.

Benefits of Baby Circumcision?

The removal of the foreskin from the tip of the penis could reduce the risk of urinary tract infections. Along with the health benefits of circumcision, many people engage in getting their newborns circumcised due to religious reasons. At our clinic, we respect the religious and cultural requirements of our patients and endeavor to provide safe, effective, and affordable circumcision services for all our patients.

What to expect on the day of the procedure

Once the procedure begins, it takes between 15-20 mins to complete. After the procedure, you may be asked to wait in the general sitting area for another 30 minutes before you are discharged home. You will be asked to come in for a follow-up appointment in 1 week's time.

Post Procedure Care

For parents we advise that you administer paracetamol to your baby to help with pain relief. If you notice any bleeding or swelling, then immediately notify us and come in for the doctor’s consult. We’ll cover the wound and provide instructions on how to properly care for it for the next few weeks.


At the initial appointment, we discuss and explain the procedure. The method/ the technique being used, risk vs benefits, and pain-management solutions. At this consultation, feel free to ask any questions you may have.


There is a cost for the consultation before the procedure. This can be bulk billed if the patient has/will get Medicare. Medicare will not provide a rebate for Circumcision performed for religious or cultural reasons. There is a medicare rebate available for medically indicated circumcision.
