Bleeding: There is minimal risk of bleeding with the procedure, mostly bleeding is stopped by putting pressure dressing however rarely requires sutures.
Infection: There is 1 in 4000 chance of infection requiring Intravenous antibiotics, usually the healing scab / exudate can look like local infection, but it is part of healing mechanism
Serious complications like Loss of Penis/Injury to urethra/mutilation are very rare events and are almost unheard.
Bleeding disorder; kindly inform if there is family history of bleeding disorders as the child will require pre-operative treatment.
Following completion of the circumcision, gauge dressing will be applied. On day 1 after circumcision, you can soak and remove the dressing, kindly do not pull on the dressing and let it fall off. After removal of dressing you can bath the child in warm water and it is recommended that the area be cleaned several times a day with warm water.
After the region has healed, no further care is required except for normal hygiene.
