The Plastibell™ technique has been around for several years. It is a clear plastic ring with a handle that detaches at the end of the procedure. This technique is the safest because the glans is protected at all times during the intervention, unlike a Mogen clamp.
The glans preparation for the circumcision is the longest part of the procedure. It takes a few minutes and implies the preputial separation, the cleansing of secretions if any, and the release of the frenulum.
The ring positioning, ligation tying and preputial excision take less than a minute.
The low rate of complications depends on parents who follow postoperative recommendations. There is very little bleeding. The risk of infection or of ring retained is very rare. Considering the small risk of bleeding, you can leave the office shortly after the circumcision.
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.
