We are pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Mitra Arjang, who is bringing her surgical expertise to Hart Family Medical. One of the services she is offering is infant circumcision for babies between 1 to 3 months old.
Circumcision involves removal of a part of the foreskin from the penis. The procedure is done in about half an hour at our clinic. Dr. Arjang uses the Plastibell circumcision technique which involves placing a plastic ring between the head of the penis and the foreskin. The Plastibell stays in place for up to 8 days, then falls off on its own.
If your son is between 1 and 3 months old, you may phone us directly at (403) 452-6622 to book an appointment for circumcision. Please note, circumcision is not covered by Alberta Health Services, and payment will be required at the time of the appointment.
