Preparation for Circumcision

2 hours before appointment:

  1. Apply Emla Cream in a thick layer from base to head of the penis.
  2. Wrap “Saran wrap” around shaft only, leave the top open so baby can still urinate.

1 hour before appointment:

  1. Give 0.5 ml of Infant Tylenol.

Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment and bring the following:

  1. 2 large receiving blankets.
  2. Extra diapers - at least 4.
  3. A bottle if not breastfeeding.

Please confirm the cost of the procedure on arrival. We do accept cash, debit, Visa and MasterCard.

Please be advised that  if you have other children you must find alternate care for them during this appointment as they will not be allowed in the treatment room during this procedure. This is for their safety as well as the safety of the baby.  

Post Circumcision Care

Your baby had a circumcision today, please follow the post-operative care:

  1. Air your baby out for 20 minutes three times a day for one week.
  2. 0.5 ml of Infant Tylenol can be given for the first 24 hours, every 4-6 hours.
  3. Do not submerge your baby in a bath for seven days. A sponge bath is fine.
  4. Apply vaseline with each diaper change for one week and put the diaper on tightly with
    the penis pointing downward.
  5. Remove all stool from the penis gently with a wet cloth.
  6. Report any excessive bleeding. Blood stained spots on the diaper is acceptable for up to
    two days, but any blood seen dripping is not normal.
  7. Swelling will appear in the first day and will last for 48 hours.
  8. Any redness/discharge/swelling beyond 48 hours needs to be reported within 24 hours.
  9. Please call our office with any concerns (403.726.0524).
  10. Go to Alberta Children’s Hospital/South Health Campus for after-hours emergencies.
