Circumcision is a common procedure for both males and females and as such, there are different considerations regarding the calculation of a circumvention unit cost. The procedure generally costs more than two thousand dollars. However, when estimating the actual circumvention unit cost it should be noted that some procedures carry greater risk or may require additional surgeries. To determine the true cost of the circumvention unit, it is important to perform a cost accounting. Due to the unique considerations of each case and variations in the number of surgeries, an exact calculation is virtually impossible.
If the site of infection is common, a detailed procedure may need to be performed in order to determine the cost of circumvention. A preoperative testicular infection test, for example, is usually required before surgery. A mixed site, prepped for surgery, is a more accurate way to determine costs of a procedure. When assessing the cost of a procedure, the two main factors to consider are the frequency of complications (also known as the rate or infection) and the extent of scarring or skin loss (also known as post-treatment Scarring). Aesthetic issues, training, certification, and costs associated with choosing a non-surgical provider are all important considerations that are often not included in this category.
Assuming the typical course of events, the actual circumvention unit cost will relate directly to the cost of a forceps-guided male circumcision. In this type of procedure, a post-operative forceps-guided, topical anesthetic is applied. Forceps are routinely employed in the procedure, as they have excellent adhesive power and offer a higher level of safety and control. The anesthetic is applied with a tiny tube that is inserted into the penis by a trained and certified medical supply specialist or by a licensed medical professional who is authorized to perform the procedure.
Assuming no complications, the total circumvention unit cost will be calculated as follows: Preoperative testing cost – $0.50; Implant price – $0.50; Implant base cost – $0.50; Total post-implant cost – $0.50. Depending on the site selected for the surgical procedure and the chosen equipment used, a mixed site circumvention unit cost may be different. This mixed-site model takes into account both the procedure cost as well as the additional implant cost incurred at a local hospital. This mix site circumvention unit cost is determined by the characteristics of the chosen surgical site, the type of equipment utilized, and the specific patient characteristics. Site selection, equipment selection, post-implant care, and patient management all impact the overall surgical and post-treatment outcomes. The mixed site model is used when multiple procedures need to be performed at one facility and are normally used to provide a more economical total circumvention unit cost.
One center can offer many packages for male and female adult patients interested in undergoing a sexual exam. For this reason, a single clinic typically offers a fixed package price on the examined male or female patient and then varies the package price based on their individual requirements. Some centers offer a gender choice option, which allows you to choose from male or female options. This enables a mixed site to have a single physician on staff who can offer an expertly tailored package for a variety of patients with a variety of needs.
Circumcision can be performed using traditional techniques using anesthetic, forceps, retractors and other tools. These tools are quick and less painful because they require little preparation. Forceps-guided male circumcision, commonly known as “gloved gliding” by physicians and referred to as “rubber gliding” by practitioners outside of the medical community, requires no anesthetic and thus leads to less pain and more rapid healing. The surgeon is involved in the removal of the skin and scar tissue during forceps-guided male circumcision. For this reason, forceps-guided male circumcision may be used where other methods may not be feasible such as in the case of female patients.
Laser technology can also be used to circumcise the foreskin. Laser procedures for this procedure require a local anesthetic because the skin is sensitive in this area. Because of the sensitive nature of the skin, many physicians are not willing to perform this procedure. In addition, due to complications such as swelling and infection, a doctor will generally not perform the procedure unless there are compelling personal reasons to do so. A doctor may not opt to make an elective procedure mandatory if he or she believes it will not benefit the patient, the procedure’s costs, or their health insurance coverage.
Many private clinics offer an elective procedure called “clamping” which involves the use of a surgical clamp that holds the foreskin to the scrotum. Clamping is not recommended in the routine care of a child as it can cause trauma and is potentially dangerous. If you choose this procedure, you should ask your doctor for his recommendations for a local anesthesia and whether he would recommend the clinic to use anesthetics during your procedure. Your pediatrician will be able to advise you of the best course of action when it comes to deciding whether to have a surgical procedure performed on your baby.
