  • What is Stapler Circumcision?

    Stapler circumcision is a minimally invasive procedure that is used for safe, quick and efficient removal of the penile foreskin. The procedure is performed using a circumcision stapler (also called anastomat), an instrument specially designed for circumcision.

    During the surgery, the stapler is fitted over the penis, and once fired, it removes the foreskin in one quick motion and closes the incision using a silicone ring/nonbioabsorbable staples. Since the amount of foreskin to be removed is predetermined in the procedure, it is extremely safe and provides the desired results for both the patient and the surgeon.

    What Happens During Stapler Circumcision Surgery?


    The diagnostic tests required for stapler circumcision vary based on whether the surgery is medically necessary or not. Often, patients get circumcised for aesthetic or religious reasons, and for these patients, only a general health checkup is necessary before the surgery. 

    If you have pain, infection, or inflammation near the tip of your penis, then you may need circumcision for medical reasons. To determine that, the surgeon will perform a variety of diagnostic tests such as:

    • Urinalysis: Laboratory test to check the appearance, concentration, and contents of the patient’s urine to find if the patient has UTIs, kidney issues, etc.
    • Tissue culture: If there is any discharge, then it is cultured and examined for signs of bacterial/fungal infection
    • Blood tests: The patient may require blood tests such as random blood sugar, bleeding tests, etc. if they have systemic health issues.


    Stapler circumcision is an advanced circumcision procedure that allows for faster recovery and better results as compared to open circumcision. The surgery can be performed under both general and local anesthesia, although local anesthesia is preferred. 

    Once the patient has been anesthetized, the penis is disinfected and the stapler is fitted on the penis. Proper fitting of the device on the penis is important to avoid tearing the foreskin and to protect the penis glans from the surgical blade. Then, the stapler is triggered, i.e., it removes the foreskin and closes the incision using a silicone ring at the same time. 

    Finally, the device is unscrewed and removed, and the penis is pressed with gauze to stop any bleeding that may have occurred. The wound is dressed using a compression bandage and the patient is moved to a recovery ward for postoperative observation.

    How to Prepare for Stapler Circumcision Surgery?

    What to Expect After Stapler Circumcision Surgery?

    After the surgery, you will be discharged on the same day, within a few hours so that you can rest and recover at home. You will need to visit your urologist for a follow-up consultation and wound inspection 2-3 days after the surgery. 

    During this visit, the surgeon will remove the compression bandage and examine the surgical site for any signs of bleeding or infection. After this, the wound will be left open to recover. The silicone ring left on the penis will fall off on its own within 10-14 days once the incision has healed enough. 

    You will be able to return to work within a week of the surgery but you must avoid any sexual activity, including masturbation, for at least a month. You should also avoid strenuous exercises like running or weight lifting as they may strain the muscles surrounding the penis and delay the recovery.

    If your child is getting circumcised, you should consult their pediatrician before the surgery regarding anesthesia usage and recovery rate.

    When is Stapler Circumcision Required?

    There are many different reasons for which you may require/want circumcision surgery, some of which are listed below.

    Laser circumcision is quite effective for balanitis treatment, phimosis surgery (tight foreskin treatment) paraphimosis treatment, posthitis treatment and balanoposthitis surgery

    Benefits of Stapler Circumcision

    Generally, there are two most common types of patients for circumcision surgery: Adults with penile problems and newborns getting circumcision due to religious reasons. Currently, according to most research studies, the benefits of stapler circumcision outweigh the risks. Circumcision reduces the risk of contracting UTIs, STIs, HIV, etc. It can even lead to lower risk of developing penile cancer in men and cervical cancer in their sexual partners.

    In the past, open circumcision was the norm for both these types of patients, but nowadays, stapler and laser circumcision are preferred. Of these two techniques, stapler circumcision surgery is often preferred as it provides better results with minimal complications.

    Stapler circumcision preserves the tissue surrounding the surgical site and removes the foreskin with minimal blood loss. It has a short recovery period and the patient is completely recovered within a couple of weeks. The silicone ring left on the penis prevents postsurgical infections and aids the recovery of the patient.

    At mediEnd Care we treat various foreskin infection by laser circumcision, stapler circumcision and frenuloplasty surgery.

    Recovery Rate and Tips After Stapler Circumcision

    The recovery steps of stapler circumcision in both children and adults are about the same, however, babies generally heal quicker, with the recovery time for newborns being less than 7-10 days. In newborns, the silicone ring falls off within 5-7 days, as compared to 10-14 days in adults.

    You can follow the given tips to promote recovery:

    Case Study

    Ajay (pseudonym) is an office worker in his late 20s. He has an active sexual life but lately, he started having pain and difficulty while having sex. Within a few days, he also started experiencing pain while peeing. Since this is a sensitive condition, he was hesitant about consulting a physician. 

    When he looked online for treatment, he landed on mediEnd Care. He immediately called us and booked an appointment.  He met up with our urologist the next day and found out he has paraphimosis. He carefully consulted our urologist regarding his treatment options and finally decided to get circumcision surgery for quick and long-term relief. We discussed his treatment options, i.e., stapler and laser circumcision, and finally decided the best option for him was stapler circumcision.

    His surgery was scheduled within the next couple of days and it was performed without any delays or complications. To make his treatment seamless, we handled all the documentation regarding his hospitalization and insurance. 

    He was in a little pain for 2-3 days but could immediately return to work after a day’s rest. He recovered completely within a couple of weeks of the surgery. Although not required, he visited us for a couple of free post-surgical consultations to ensure there are no complications. He was very grateful to our urologist and left raving reviews for us after the treatment.

    FAQs about Stapler Circumcision

    Can newborns be circumcised through a stapler circumcision procedure?

    Yes, stapler circumcision is completely safe for patients of all ages, even newborns. In fussy babies, it may be preferred since the foreskin is removed in one quick motion through a pre-attached stapler.

    Can I get stapler circumcision surgery even if I have an infected foreskin?

    Yes, stapler circumcision is very safe, even for patients with bleeding and discharge in their foreskin due to penile problems such as phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis, balanoposthitis, etc.

    Do I need to visit a doctor to get the silicone ring removed?

    No, normally, the silicone ring, along with the staples attached to it, will fall off on its own within 10-14 days once the incision has healed. However, if you notice any pain associated with the ring, you can visit your urologist for wound examination.

    Will stapler circumcision affect my sexual drive or performance?

    No, stapler circumcision only removes the foreskin which does not affect a person’s sexual drive or performance at all. In fact, in some cases it can even enhance the person’s penile sensitivity increasing their sexual pleasure.

    Is circumcision covered under insurance?

    It depends. Generally, for patients that require circumcision for medical reasons, it would be covered, but for patients who are getting circumcised due to aesthetic or religious reasons, the treatment may not be covered under insurance.

    Will I have pain after stapler circumcision surgery?

    Yes, there will be mild pain and discomfort after the surgery, but it can be managed using over-the-counter pain medicines. If your baby is getting circumcised, oral medication may not be feasible, so you should consult your doctor regarding anesthetic and anti-inflammatory ointments for your child.
