  • IMPORTANT IMFORMATION ABOUT THIS PROCEDURE

  • I understand that circumcision is an elective procedure and that some believe there are no actual benefits from an elective circumcision. Circumcision is a procedure that involves the removal of the normal male foreskin. I understand the patient will be placed in a standard circumcision immobilization device. The penis will be draped and prepped. Local anesthesia will be administered and the foreskin removed.

    I understand that there are risks and complications associated with this procedure and that these risks and complications are rare. The risks and complications include, but are not limited to, bleeding or infection at the site, and/or fever. I understand that if the patient does not urinate normally within eight hours after the elective circumcision or any of the disclosed complications occur, I am to contact my physician.

    I understand that if complications occur, the patient may need to undergo additional medical procedures and/or be taken to a hospital for continued care. I understand that in the course of this procedure it may become necessary to perform additional procedures which are not known to be needed at this time. I request that and hereby provide my informed consent to a physician to perform such procedures at his or her discretion if needed during the procedure.

    I agree that this consent is written in lay-terms and conveys to me the risks and complications that could occur with elective circumcision.

    I have been given the opportunity to ask questions regarding elective circumcision.
