Circumcision: ShangRing Device

Circumcision with the ShangRing Device

Below is a list of Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) regarding Circumcision with the ShangRing Device.


We now have an FAQ list that we hope will help
you answer some of the more common ones.

When does the ShangRing come off?

The ShangRing can be removed at any point in time 7 days after its placement.
It can also be left to fall off on its own, this normally happens in about 30 days.

When is the wound normally fully healed?

4-6 weeks after procedure.

When can the patient start to shower take a bath?

48 hours after the procedure. Before that, it is better to keep the area dry and covered with the gauze and vaseline.

What if the patient experiences pain?

The first 24 hours is when most patients experience pain after the circumcision.
Take the pain reliever prescribed by Dr. Hajoona as needed.
You can also apply Xylocaine Jelly for pain relief as needed. The Xylocaine Jelly can be used every 4 hours.
It’s normal for some patients to feel uncomfortable when urinating for the first time after the procedure. This gets better with time. Let Dr Hajoona know if the patient can NOT urinate or can NOT move because of the pain. This is abnormal.

Can we expect bleeding?

It is normal to see a small amount of blood on the cotton gauze or underwear for the first 24 hours.
If the bleeding does not stop, continue holding pressure and seek immediate medical attention

Why is there a white/yellow film on parts of the wound?

During the healing process it is normal to see a shiny white or yellow film on parts of the wound. This film is part of the healing process and cannot be easily wiped off. It is different from pus, which is a sign of infection. Pus can be easily wiped off and usually has a very foul odor. Other signs of infection include increasing redness, pain, and swelling, developing a fever, trouble urinating, or loss of appetite. Seek medical attention immediately if these signs occur.
