Paraphimosis refers to the blockage of the foreskin – the skin covering the glans of the penis – when it is brought backwards.
The foreskin can not then return to its normal position and is blocked behind the glans, which itself can be “strangled”.
All uncircumcised men with a rather tight foreskin are potentially at risk for a paraphimosis.
This is an urgent condition that must be treated without delay and that requires a reduction of the paraphimosis as quickly as possible, by a doctor or in one of the Cliniques Marois.
Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie de l’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, if you require his professional services, you will have to pay directly the Cliniques Marois for the services rendered.
To ensure the smooth running of the clinics aa well as a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and staff members, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for cancelling an appointment, 5 working days for cancelling a minor surgery in the office and 21 working days for major surgery at the CMC. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.
Change of appointment:
We understand that events occur and schedules change, so we ask patients to give us at least a 24-hour notice for any changes of appointment. We will be happy to reschedule another one for you. Failure to provide such notice within this timeframe will result in a $ 100 fee.
Thank you for your understanding.
