Best Phimosis / Circumcision treatment in Hyderabad
and advanced laser treatments
Phimosis is a condition that affects men, where the foreskin of the penis cannot be pulled back over the head of the penis. Phimosis can cause
discomfort during sexual activity and difficulty in cleaning the penis, leading to infections. In India, phimosis is a prevalent condition among
men, and the treatment options depend on the severity of the condition.
About 70% of uncircumcised men in India, according to a study by the National Health and Family Survey (NFHS) in 2015–2016 have phimosis. The study also revealed that the prevalence of phimosis is higher in rural areas than in urban areas.
Causes of phimosis:
There are a number of causes of phimosis, including:
- Congenital Phimosis: This is a condition where the foreskin is too tight at birth, making it difficult to retract.
- Balanitis: This is an inflammation of the glans penis that can cause scarring, leading to phimosis.
- Trauma: Injury to the penis or foreskin can cause scarring, leading to phimosis.
- Poor hygiene: Poor hygiene can cause infections and inflammation, leading to phimosis.
Diagnosis of phimosis:
A doctor can diagnose phimosis by physical examination. The doctor will check if the foreskin can be retracted, and if not, he will determine the severity of the condition. In some cases of phimosis, a biopsy may be required to rule out any underlying medical conditions.
Types of phimosis:
There are two types of phimosis:
- Physiological Phimosis: This is a natural condition where the foreskin is tight, but it can be easily retracted with gentle pressure.
- Pathological Phimosis: This is a condition where the foreskin is too tight and cannot be retracted even with gentle pressure.

Treatments for Phimosis:
The treatment options for phimosis depend on the severity of the condition:
- Conservative Treatment: In mild cases of phimosis, the doctor may recommend conservative treatment, such as applying phimosis topical creams or ointments to the foreskin to reduce inflammation and scarring.
- Circumcision: In severe cases of phimosis, the doctor may recommend circumcision, which is a surgical procedure that involves removing the foreskin. Circumcision is a common procedure in India, and there are many hospitals and doctors who perform the procedure.
- Laser Surgery: Laser surgery is a less invasive option for treating phimosis. This procedure involves using a laser to remove the tight tissue and restore normal function to the penis. Laser surgery is a relatively new technique in India, and there are only a few hospitals and doctors who perform this procedure.
- Stapler circumcision surgery: is a less invasive option for treating phimosis and involves using a stapler device to remove the tight tissue and restore normal function to the penis. It is a relatively new technique in India and can be performed at specialized hospitals with experienced doctors.
The cost of circumcision surgery in Hyderabad ranges from INR 15,000 to INR 35,000, depending on the hospital and the doctor’s experience. The cost of stapler-based circumcision in Hyderabad ranges from INR 25,000 to INR 50,000. For more information, contact us.
Prevention methods for phimosis include good hygiene practices, such as keeping the penis clean and dry, avoiding harsh soaps or chemicals, and avoiding sexual practices that can cause injury to the penis.
Postoperative Care for Phimosis:
After undergoing circumcision surgery, it is essential to follow proper postoperative care for phimosis to avoid complications. The doctor will provide specific instructions.
In conclusion, phimosis is a common condition among men in India, and it can cause discomfort and difficulty in daily life. The treatment options for phimosis range from conservative treatment to surgical procedures like circumcision and laser surgery. Good hygiene practices can help prevent the onset of phimosis.
