The IMC Circumcision London, under Dr. Said Bakir, is the leading innovative circumcision clinic in London and has performed over 10,000 successful circumcisions. As well as offering surgical techniques of adult circumcision, such as forceps guided and sleeve resection, the IMC is the only centre in the Greater London region to be fully equipped and trained to use the Adult Shang Ring method. Doctors perform circumcisions at our London clinic with no hospital admission required – a barrier for many men due to anxiety, embarrassment and cost.
We focus on safety, minimising discomfort and ensuring a good cosmetic outcome. It is these priorities that have allowed us to gain our word-of-mouth reputation that has provided us with appointment requests day after day, even since before the internet.
Circumcised men and their partners generally feel more hygienic and evidence suggests that circumcision reduces the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infections or developing penile cancer.
You do not need a referral from your GP. You are the only one that needs to decide whether you want a circumcision or not. You can simply ring, talk to our friendly team or request to speak to the doctor, and then book a free consultation and suitable appointment slot. Whether it’s for personal, cultural, Islamic, Jewish or any other reason, all are welcome to use our services.
Pain during the procedure is reduced due to the application of local anaesthetic. Some men take phone calls or happily read during their operation.
There are also some medical indications for circumcision – circumcision is a treatment for phimosis, paraphimosis, recurrent balanitis and various other problems. We are happy to discuss and treat these, although you may need to be seen as an outpatient in the local private hospital. Some men come to us after a “botched” circumcision procedure and we can usually see these men in our normal London clinic. Whatever the reason, we are happy to provide a consultation and discuss a tailored plan going forward.
Surgical circumcision such as forceps guided and sleeve resection can be used for older boys and adults. An adequate dose of local anaesthetic is applied to numb the skin pre-operatively and more may be used during the procedure or post-operatively if this is indicated, for example if the numbness is wearing off. Once numbness is assessed, the foreskin that is covering the glans is surgically removed.
This newer method developed with full backing of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hopes to reduce HIV worldwide by making circumcision safer and less invasive. As of 2014, we have performed 187 circumcisions successfully gaining positive feedback from these men. The main benefits of the Shang Ring are:
