Dr Malik has a private practice based in Harley Street, London W1. The circumcision surgery is offered as a visiting service in London and Greater London for children from 7 days to 4 years of age.
Dr Hammad Malik performs the surgical procedure known as a circumcision. In Jewish culture this is known as a bris or brit millah and the circumciser as the mohel. The surgery involves removal of the penis foreskin. This is performed using a local anaesthetic injection and is a painless method called the Plastibell or ring technique. The circumcision operation is performed at home using single use sterile disposable instruments. All follow ups are provided and Dr Malik is on call so may be contacted at any time afterwards.
Dr Malik believes that it is extremely important that no child should feel any pain either during or after a circumcision. Initially we go through an information sheet explaining the procedure and aftercare to the parents. It is always performed as a painless procedure under local anesthetic. All instruments used are sterile, single use and disposable only. This greatly reduces any risk of blood borne infections eg HIV and Hepatitis. Following the circumcision, parents may contact Dr Malik at any time.
