Reasons why people choose IMC – the leading Circumcision Clinic in London for children and adults
Any age at one place: We offer circumcision to males infants, babies, children, young men and adults.
Latest technology: The IMC is the leading innovator in private circumcision services in the UK. We are always monitoring ongoing research to achieve the best outcomes. Our expert doctors have been personally invited to and attended international research efforts in circumcision safety and innovation. Currently, we are the only centre in the Greater London area fully equipped and trained to use the adult ring method of circumcision, giving our adult patients a faster recovery time combined with a cleaner cut.
Specialist centre: We have performed over 10,000 circumcisions during a 27 year period. Our centre is fully equipped and experienced staff and specialists are on hand to answer questions. We produce our own information packs including helpful tips from our circumcision experts.
Consultants: Our specialist consultant surgeon can operate to treat both complicated and minor penile problems. Mr. Alla Amin MB ChB, MS, FRCS will see the majority of the patients needing a complicated therapeutic circumcision at a private hospital in London, followed up at the outpatient clinic. Our experienced team make the IMC an ideal place to come for treatment of phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis and other penile problems.
Circumcision leaders: Being the leading innovative centre in London, we were one of the early adopters of the Plastibell® ring method for boys, which has since become a widely used method for babies and children. Clinic director and expert in Plastibell®, Dr. Said Bakir MD MSc, has used this method since the late 1980s and has trained many of the circumcision practitioners in London in the use of this method, which helps to reduce bleeding and improves the cosmetic outcome, making it one of the most popular circumcision procedures today.
Experience: We understand that the most important factor for you in deciding who to choose for you or your son is experience. While being qualified and trained in medical and surgical methods is good, experience in a particular procedure improves outcomes. Dr. Said Bakir has performed circumcision year after year in London for over two decades. This is why most of the parents are referred to us by word-of-mouth from other happy mums and dads.
Local anaesthetic: All procedures are carried out using a local anaesthetic to numb the skin and make the procedure almost pain-free. We check the quality of the anaesthetic and the absence of pain prior to starting the operation. Generally, the quick local anaesthetic injections are the most uncomfortable part of the procedure.
Disposable sterile equipment: All our tools and instruments are certified sterile and for single-use only, which prevents cross contamination and infection.
24 hour help and assistance: You will be given an out-of-hours number which, should you have any concerns, can be contacted any time.
Take-home packs: Our care does not end when you leave the clinic. We provide parents helpful packs to advise on after-care following circumcision: what to expect on the day, how to care for your child after the procedure and the expected progress of the child with an image guide. It has specifically been written by our centre for the circumcision procedures that we do and based on best-practices and the 27 years of experience we have accumulated. All the initial medications and ointments are also provided.
Parking: There are no restrictions around our clinic so you can park here with ease. Our centre is located outside the London Congestion Zone.
Friendly staff: Our clinic staff are all experienced in dealing with issues surrounding circumcision.

Free follow-up visits: Follow-up visits to the London clinic are also included in the price (if required).
Free consultation: We offer adults a free consultation with a circumcision doctor at the London clinic, with no commitment necessary.

Benefits and reasons for circumcision
Circumcision is a great way to protect yourself or your baby son throughout life. In the United States, the national health guidelines were updated by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in December 2014 concluding that the benefits of circumcision outweigh the risks. The many medical benefits include the reduction of the risk of developing the following unpleasant and serious illnesses:
Urinary tract infections
Many people don’t realise that these can be serious. They can cause permanent damage to the urinary tract and kidneys. Studies have consistently shown an increased risk of UTI in uncircumcised males, with the greatest risk shown in infants younger than 1 year of age. A review of nine studies reported that the increased risk was 12-fold.
This painful, often recurring, swelling of the glans which can make urination difficult and even impossible, can be completely avoided by circumcision.
You significantly cut your risk of sexually transmitted infections by choosing circumcision.
We know that the best way to avoid these life-limiting conditions is to have one trusted and infection-free sexual partner, but circumcision does offer some measure of protection. The World Health Organisation has a dedicated task force on promoting circumcision as a way to reduce the spread of HIV.
Cancer of the penis
Future-proof your health or that of your baby son with circumcision; cancer of the penis is rare (about 1 in 600 uncircumcised males according to one study) – but is almost unheard of in circumcised men.
Circumcision is the only treatment available for tight foreskin (prepuce) and frenulum problems.
And the benefits extend to your partner too. Why?
Because a circumcised penis is much easier to keep clean and almost odour-free. Additionally, your lady’s health will benefit from circumcision. Cancer of the cervix in women is due to the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which thrives under and on the foreskin, and can be transmitted during intercourse. A study in the >New England Journal of Medicine has shown that male circumcision is associated with reduced risk of HPV infection and reduced risk of cervical cancer in their respective female partners.
Circumcision will allow you to enjoy all these health benefits for life – and the life of your partner.
Some of our recent reviews:
The procedure and after care were explained thoroughly, and the circumcision was performed expertly and with the utmost respect. We have moved to Canada since the last time we spoke and have had another son, and we wished we were still in the UK so we could have brought him to your clinic - it was really the best experience. (The procedure here was not as quick and easy). Thank you!
I would just like to write to say thank you for the successful operation on my son. The ring fell off during the time expected and I am very pleased with the results. My son is really fascinated by the physical appearance. I will definitely recommend you.
A huge thank you to Dr. Bakir and his team. Everyone was so helpful, patient, and polite. So professional yet so caring. We recommend the IMC to all. Our son was only nine months at the time of the circumcision but he was not upset at any time. He was actually babbling with Dr. Bakir while the procedure was taking place.
100% satisfaction without a doubt. Once again, thank you so much to everyone.
Just wanted to thank you and your staff for making my circumcision a very pleasant and relaxed procedure. I felt totally relaxed and in very good hands with yourself. The whole procedure from start to finish was pain free and very professional. I was also pleased with the fact i was able to sit up towards the end and watch as you made the last few cuts and removed my foreskin. My only regret was I never asked if I could video the whole procedure on my iPod. I've enclosed a few pictures that I took when I got home. Even at this stage, I'm very pleased with how it looks. Thank you Dr Said Bakir and your staff. The whole experience from start to finish was very professional. I highly recommend any adult male wishing to be circumcised to have the Shang Ring method.
