Experienced Urologist Performs Child Circumcision with Shang Ring

New York Urology Specialists is the first clinic in the United States to offer circumcision with ShangRing circumcision clamp.   Shang Ring was developed in China and is a major advance in circumcision surgery.  ShangRing has been used to circumcise more 600,000 children and adults worldwide with an excellent track of safety.  

ShangRing is the only circumcision device that has been extensively studied in randomized controlled studies in over 3,000 men.

ShangRing has been endorsed by Bill Gates and Melinda Gates Foundation.  It is the only FDA approved minimally invasive circumcision device.   Shang ring was originally called Shenghuan but was renamed ShangRing in honor of its inventor.

What is ShangRing circumcision?

ShangRing circumcision is an innovative type of circumcision that can be done noninvasively in a 15-20 minutes procedure in the office settings under local anesthesia without the need of going to sleep with general anesthesia.

What are the Advantages of ShangRing Circumcision?

There are a number of advantages of ShangRing circumcisionRecovery and healing after ShangRing circumcision are typically faster than after traditional circumcision.  The procedure can be done in less than 15-20 minutes.  The infection read is very low after ShangRing circumcision.  The risk of bleeding is also extremely low after ShangRing circumcision.  The appearance or aesthetic results after ShangRing circumcision are very appealing with circumcision healing typically with minimal scar-line.

What are the Limitations of ShangRing Circumcision In Children?

Children with severe phimosis are not good candidates for ShangRing circumcision.  Children who undergo circumcision under local anesthesia have to be mature enough to understand the procedure they are undergoing and be willing and interested to have a circumcision done as they need to cooperate during the procedure and be able to lie on the procedure table without parent presence.

Currently, we limit ShangRing circumcision in the office settings under local anesthesia to children that are at least 12-year-old and who are adequately mature for their age.  The child must understand what is being done (circumcision), why it’s being done, and be willing and have a strong desire to have the procedure done.   Boys with severe phimosis and granular adhesions are not candidates for ShangRing circumcision under local anesthesia (they should have circumcision done under general anesthesia).

Common Reasons for ShangRing Circumcision in Children:

  • Hygienic reasons
  • Religious Reasons
  • Phimosis (unable to pull back foreskin)
  • Frequent UTI
  • Inflammation or irritation of foreskin (balanitis)

Advantages of ShangRing Circumcision for Children:

  • Very quick (<15-20 minutes)
  • Requires only local anesthesia
  • A patient is able to go home immediately after circumcision with Shang Ring
  • Quick recovery
  • Minimal or no pain during the procedure and after ShangRing circumcision
