Dr Anil Kumar Patil

At least Dr Patil is honest, to some extent, on his website. He states:

“Some people are under the impression that there is no cutting involved and that is not so. It is normal practice to trim off the surplus foreskin but not till after the circulation is cut off. If that’s not done it’s too difficult to keep clean and more likely to get infected. Removal of the foreskin is part of the Plastic Circumcision Device procedure, so that when the procedure is over, circumcision is complete. However, due to the application of the anaesthetic cream, he should not feel any pain.”

On the last sentence you should note the following:
– the manufacturers of the aneaesthetic cream do not recommend it for use on infants under 2 years of age
– the aneasthetic cream lasts only a few hours. When an adult undergoes circumcision he can choose to take post-operative pain killing medication. A baby boy gets no releif from the fresh wound on the most sensitive part of his body.

Further information on the truth of the plastibel techniche can be found here.

Dr Muhammad Mateen

Dr Muhammad Mateen

Indian doctor Mohammed Mateen Ui Jabbar was suspended for three months over his attempted circumcision of a 26-month-old boy which resulted in gross swelling and severe scarring of the toddler’s genitals.

Apart from Dr Jabbar having his medical licence suspended for 3mths, Dr Jabbar has ongoing restrictions on his ability to engage in the circumcision of minors. Specifically, Dr Jabbar is only permitted to “circumcise infants up to the age of 4 months in his clinic” and “on children 5 years to 18 years in a hospital or approved day care facility with appropriate anaesthesia under the supervision of and as directed by a consultant anaesthetist”.

Dr Jabbar also appeared before the board two years ago when he was reprimanded for “unnecessarily” touching a patient’s breasts before telling her they were “sagging” and could be corrected with a breast lift or implants.
