Circumcision is the total or partial excision of the foreskin, which is the skin that covers the tip of the penis by a surgical procedure. It is effective to correct disorders such as phimosis (which prevents the foreskin to retract and thus discover the glans) and paraphimosis (most often due to an inflammation of the foreskin) treatment. Circumcision is widespread universally, and many parents prefer to practice in their newborns, not a prescription, but for cultural reasons. This is a very simple operation, which lasts only a few minutes, and does not require general anesthesia. The recovery of the patient is also very fast, within a few days and can lead a normal life.
