Urology Surgery


The foreskin of the penis is difficult to retract when suffering from phimosis. Boys and men who have not had their bodies circumcised experience it. It is typical for most babies and toddlers to initially struggle with retracting the foreskin, and phimosis is frequently seen in newborn boys because the skin covering the tip of the penis is still tight and less elastic. With time, phimosis normally goes away or gets better on its own in new born. By the age of three, the majority of males can completely retract their foreskin.


Common symptoms of phimosis include:

  • Pain in glans
  • Swelling at the tip of the penis
  • Foreskin bulging (particularly during urination)
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Inability to pull back the foreskin
  • Difficulty in intercourse 
  • Infection of penis(Balanitis)


The foreskin is often treated with a topical steroid therapy to loosen and manipulate it in the majority of cases of phimosis. In drug-refractory cases, circumcision may be necessary.

Options for circumcision are:-

  • Laser circumcision
  • Stapler Circumcision
  • Conventional Circumcision
  • Dorsal slit
