Circumcision and Frenuloplasty

Each circumcision is individualized to the needs and desires of the patient.  Circumcision can be performed with or without penile frenuloplasty.  Most men choose to have frenuloplasty performed at the time of circumcision as it improves the appearance of the penis.  Frenuloplasty can also be performed without circumcision.   We also perform frenuloplasty revision surgery.

Care at NY Urology Specialists
by on Jul 06, 2019

I am a 54 year-old male who is extremely happy with my care at New York Urology Specialists. I came to see Dr. Alex out of near desperation after consulting with three other urologists. Literally over one night, I began experiencing severe penile pain and burning. None of the other urologists were able to help diagnose what my problem was and seemingly didn't take my problem very seriously. In fact, one of them specifically told me at it had nothing to do with my prostate. After 6 weeks of suffering, I saw Dr. Alex. He examined me and gave me some tests and lab work. He very quickly ascertained that my problem was due to an enlarged prostate. He proscribed medicine to deal with my pain in the short-term and keep my prostate size in check over the long-term. My problem quickly disappeared. Today, 5 years later, I feel great. Dr, Alex listens to you as a patient, takes your opinion and health concerns seriously and knows his field inside-and-out so that you can get proper treatment for your problem. I can't thank him enough for diagnosing and solving my malady - you sometimes can't appreciate a problem until you have it. Getting rid of it and getting back to normal is so important - I am so glad that I saw Dr. Alex for my problem.

Thanks to Ana, and the staff, especially Dr. Alex for treating me so well. Best regards, Lee

Good Dr. who cares about his patients
by on Aug 18, 2017

Received circumcision from Dr. Shteynshlyuger. Dr. Shteynshlyuger is a very good specialist who cares for his patients. He was always concerned with my physical and mental comfort prior, during and post-operation. Dr. Alex is very thorough in his work to assess any problems and provide the necessary solution. Being that he has recently moved to a new location, this may afford for speedier appointments and easier flow of patients in and out. In addition, more personal space for waiting patients. If there was any con, it would be, the lack of space at his prior office and being able to see his patients at the appointed time, but a necessary sacrifice for good, careful work. I would recommend him as a very good doctor.
