A new method of carrying out male circumcision without the need for surgery has been approved by the World Health Organisation. The PrePex circumcision device uses an elastic band to cut off the blood supply to the foreskin until it dies and falls off, or can be cut off painlessly. It is hoped the device will help to reduce the spread of HIV in Africa because being circumcised reduces a heterosexual man’s risk of becoming infected by 60 per cent.The technique does not require a general anaesthetic and is believed to be safer than surgery.
