ZSR Circumcision is a specialized circumcision technology which uses a surgical stapler to cut and seal the cut skin edges instead of traditional sutures. In conventional circumcision, the surgeon has to first cut the skin with a knife and then stitch it. In ZSR circumcision technology, the stitching with staples and the cutting are done by the device.

The circumcision stapler is a single-use device. The disposable circumcision stapler is a sterile, hand-held, manual surgical instrument preloaded with non-bioabsorbable skin staples intended to be used to perform a circumcision. It is designed to cut the foreskin and apply a circular row(s) of staples proximal to the cut line. The stapler portion typically consists of a dome intended to be inserted under the foreskin over the glans penis and a circular cutting stapler mechanism with a manual lever intended to connect over the outside of the foreskin.

Indications for ZSR Circumcision

  • Phimosis - This is when the foreskin is too tight and cannot be retracted from the head of the penis.
  • Paraphimosis - This is when the foreskin of an uncircumsied penis cannot pull back over the head of the penis. The condition occurs more than often in boys and older man.
  • Balanitis - This is inflammation of the glans penis (the head of the penis).
  • Posthitis - This is inflammation of the prepuce, otherwise known as the foreskin.
  • Balanoposthitis - This occurs when both the head and foreskin of the penis are inflamed. Cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions on the foreskin. Cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions on the foreskin. Warty lesion of the foreskin - like viral warts.

What is frenuloplasty?

Frenuloplasty refers to a urological procedure where surgical alteration of the frenulum, a small fold of tissue which is located on the underside of the penis, is made.

How is it performed?

An incision is made in the frenulum, and it is then stretched in order to lengthen it. After this, the wound is closed with stitches. This makes the frenulum longer, effectively relieving pain and discomfort. The procedure can be performed under general or local anaesthesia.
