Circumcision means removing the foreskin of the penis.

The medical reasons are mainly tightness of the foreskin called phimosis and recurrent infections. This is done under local anaesthetic. We do not perform circumcisions on infants or young children. You have to be 17 years or older for this procedure to be performed at Eastmed Doctors. Please make a booking to see Dr. Siva Nachiappan few days in advance to discuss this procedure.

There are a lot of inquiries to perform circumcision for people living outside Auckland, thank you, but Dr Siva performs circumcision only for those who are normally resident in Auckland, as it is safe and easier for follow up to make sure there are no post operative problems.
