I am not certain about this, but you should contact Dr Paul Porteous at Netcare Olivedale Hospital on 011 462 0741 and ask whether he does laser circumcisons.

Zak, laser or normal with a clamp (terraclamp or gomco) will all give very good results. Zak can you get in touch with WJA as he is looking for a foreskin since he does not have one of his own?

WJA is still trying to sue his parents and his doctor for his own circumcision that left him smegma free, foreskin free and very lucky. Only he is so obsessed with having a foreskin, that he cant see it and comes to post here to show his ignorance on foreskins as he proclaims to be the world expert on them. I think they circumcised his brain and not his penis as a baby.
