Reasons why people choose IMC – the leading Circumcision Clinic in London for children and adults

Any age at one place: We offer circumcision to male 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.

Pricing: The price for the procedure includes a consultation, local anaesthetic, administration costs and the support you need to care for yourself or your son.

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.

Communication: Patients are given clear instructions from the staff on what to expect before the procedure, as well as instructions on after-care following surgery.

Home visits: For babies and young children, you can choose to either come to our clinic or have the circumcision carried out in the comfort of your own home across most of North London, West London, South London and East London.
