Penile Block

A nerve block

This block is reserved as its name suggests, for operations on the penis – most commonly circumcision.  This block would be performed when you are asleep.  It involves having several small injections of local anaesthetic around the base of the penis.

This block has very few risks, however there is a small risk of causing bruising or haematoma around the base of the penis.
