Circ MedTech completed a Clinical Field Study improving the PrePex Procedure
The report was submitted for the review of the World Health Organization
Following the September 2016 - WHO Guidelines regarding Male Circumcision and Tetanus Infection, Circ MedTech has improved the PrePex Procedure to facilitate use of the device with equal Tetanus mitigation to that of Surgical Circumcision.
The improved technique enables Removal of the Foreskin shortly after the device placement (D0FRP) while maintaining the PrePex benefits.
Hence, we invite you to join the following Webinar:
