Dr. Reed, I am a 33 year old man who has married a wonderful lady, and would like an adult circumcision for religious reasons. Did not have one in my country where I was born. Could she be present? She works in a doctors office. Stefan
Of course your wife can be present. We’ll bring in a chair and she can sit by your side and hopefully distract you and make the experience pleasant. There have been a few articles written recently about the benefits of a mature adult in a suturing room along with a patient. This is not such a big secret as in emergency rooms where I trained, the parents were always welcome to be present which helped sedate the child. Much, much better than I or a nurse could ever do. Hope she doesn’t get bored. Circumcision anesthesia takes a while. Allow 15 minutes for the numbing cream to work, then another 10 m minutes for the local anesthetic to take effect, than about 40 minutes for a cosmetic circumcision.
Please look at before and after pictures of adult circumcisions on our web-site adult-male-circumcision.com
