‘Urinary tract infections are 90 percent less common in circumcised babies’

Expressing that circumcision is mostly done in the first two years, Pediatric Surgery Specialist Prof. Dr. İbrahim Ötgün said, “From a medical point of view, it is more appropriate to perform circumcision during infancy when wound healing is rapid. It is mostly performed with local anesthesia in newborns and in the first three months. However, it can be done at any age, as long as general anesthesia is used under appropriate conditions.”

“IT HAS MANY BENEFITS”

Stating that circumcision has many benefits in terms of health, Istanbul Gelisim University Faculty of Health Sciences, Lecturer Prof. İbrahim Ötgün said, “Urinary tract infections are seen approximately 90 percent less in circumcised infants and children.”

“HEALING TAKES FIVE TO SEVEN DAYS”

Prof. Dr. Ötgün continued his speech as follows:

“Although different methods are used for circumcision, it is the most reliable and the best classical method when it is performed by experts under appropriate conditions, and it is still the most frequently used. Recovery after circumcision usually takes five to seven days. Early periods can be passed without pain with proper treatments after circumcision. Regardless of the surgical method, redness, bruising and swelling may appear. Since there is no need for bandages after circumcision performed by experienced surgeons, there is no difficulty in urination and no need for special dressing today.”
