During regular office hours please call 514-697-2402. Alternatively, you can present yourself to a hospital emergency department that manages paediatric patients.
What can I expect at an appointment?
When you arrive at the clinic, the staff will greet you and seat you in our waiting room. You will be given a form to fill out while you wait for the doctor. The average waiting time is about 15 minutes.
What happens if I am a new patient?
New infants and adult patients will be examined by the doctor during their preliminary visit. All procedures are performed only by Dr. David Eiley, a board certified UROLOGIST at this same appointment. Dr. Eiley has performed over 10,000 procedures since 1999 using the Plasti-Bell™ technique.
We accept patients from all provinces and territories, with appointments 3-4 days per week.
What is the Plasti-Bell™ Technique?
Originally marketed in 1955, the Plasti-Bell™ is a disposable plastic bell-shaped object with a groove close to its edge. The bell is inserted into the preputial cavity (over the glans and under the foreskin) and a tight string is tied around the foreskin. Blood flow to the prepuce (Foreskin) tip is thereby restricted and the foreskin beyond the string falls off, providing a circumcision with no open wound to become irritated or infected. In addition because a plastic ring is utilized the cutline is always perfectly circular.
Do you examine children at your clinic?
Yes. All new patients will be examined by Dr.Eiley at the clinic.
How long before the procedure is completed?
The procedure is completed on the same day. It takes only a few minutes to perform. You may be present for the procedure or wait in the waiting room. You may give the nurse an extra diaper and pacifier if available.
What happens after the circumcision is completed?
Approximately 3 weeks after the procedure, please present yourself during regular office hours with your son for a quick check, to ensure that the penis has healed well. An appointment is not necessary, however we encourage you to call in advance to confirm the office hours.
How do I care for my child after the circumcision?
Dr. Eiley provides you with an instruction sheet with what is needed after the circumcision. However, it can be summarized in the following steps:
POST PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS
Your son should feed and urinate as usual afterwards. In some instances some infants can be cranky the day of the procedure.
You may wash the penis as usual (using soap, water, baby wipes, baths)
Apply some Vaseline ointment around the tip of the penis with diaper changes (to protect it from the dirty diaper).
In approximately 4 to 9 days, the plastic ring around the tip of the penis will fall off in the diaper on its own. The ring may dangle at first. Do not pull it off; it will fall off on its own within one day. Along with the ring comes a small white string and the irregular skin left at the tip of the penis.
Once the ring has fallen off, you may continue applying Vaseline for 1 week.
How much does the circumcision procedure cost?
The circumcision procedure is an elective procedure, thus it is not covered by medical insurance. For more information please contact us at info [at] circumcisiondr [dot] com or 514-697-2402.
Do you have parking facilities?
Free Parking is available in front and around the Medical Centre.
