What ZSR circumcision is?
ZSR circumcision is a simple stapling technique that removes the foreskin of the penis area. Circumcision surgery is most commonly performed on infants, although it can also be performed on adults. This procedure is the most efficient method for treating phimosis and achieving a uniform circumcision shape. It requires no stitches and does not produce even a drop of blood during the operation.
