Dorsal slit of foreskin- alternative treatment for tight foreskin.

Information about dorsal slit of foreskin from The British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS)- recently published June 2017

Key Points

  • This is a short-stay procedure to relieve a tight foreskin

  • It is sometimes used in emergency situations when the foreskin is swollen or stuck in a retracted position (paraphimosis)

  • It can be used as an alternative to circumcision in patients who are unfit or are unwilling to be circumcised

  • We make a single incision along the length of your foreskin to expose the head of your penis without removing any tissue

  • The cosmetic appearance after the procedure is not as good as it is after circumcision

Circumcision, to remove the foreskin completely, may be needed at a later stage
