Diagnosis and Treatment of Phimosis
In the last decade, the annual number of circumcisions performed in England, under the auspices of the National Health Services (NHS), has changed little. The current cost of a circumcision, performed on a day-case basis, is £500. Government figures indicate that 30,591 circumcisions were performed in 1996—a cost to the NHS of at least £15.3 million.
