My 3 years old son had circumcision at Beverley drive clinic with Dr S Al-Ali, I would take this opportunity to thank him very much for free pain and the best outcome you could think of to have the best surgery for your son, and I would advise anyone who would like and hope to have the best circumcision, to have it at Dr S Al-Ali and not waist your time looking on the internet or ask people about good doctor or surgeon , because I have waited nearly 2 month after the surgery to make sure that the my son had a perfect surgery and no problems has occurred ,my son had the traditional circumcision as the Doctor has advised me to have it as my son has not cried or panicked which I think for my personal experience is better than the one using the ring but you will get the choice at this clinic ,and again thank you very much Dr S Al-Ali for the surgery and true to your word pain free and my advise is go to this clinic as it does what it says on the tin .many thanks
You operated on me just over 4 months ago. I would just like to thank you for an excellent job. Your very clear and simple explanations, attention to detail and evident commitment were not only all correct, but very much appreciated. Thank you for a very professional 'operation'.
Bay Kemal - 2 months old
I just wanted to say thank you so much for performing the circumcision on our 2 month old, Bay Kemal last Saturday 4th April.
To have your baby come out of the procedure asleep in his daddy's arms after only 15 minutes is the greatest testament to your work and skill and the best peace of mind for any mummy!
I only wish you had done our first son rather than him having it surgically done at home.
You performed the circumcision on our son at 11am on the Saturday and the Plastibelll had fallen off by the Thursday evening bath, completely healed and cosmetically perfect. At no point did I ever have to give any pain medication to my son or have him show any pain or discomfort from the minute he had it done until the minute it healed.
All I can say is that I cannot understand anyone who even contemplates putting their son in anyone else's hands other than yours.
Thank you so much once again and if we decide to have another baby and its a boy I know exactly who I will be phoning.
Duncan - 4 weeks old
We took our 4 week old son to the clinic here in Beverley drive for a circumcision in December 2014. It was a worrying time knowing our little baby boy was under going the knife for this procedure all be it very small & quick! Well we had no need to worry! He was in & out within 10 minutes once the procedure had begun and had only shed a few tears. Bless him! He had the plastibell ring put on & it dropped off a week to the day. The ring started to loosen on day 4/5 and fell on day 7 with the little bit of skin attached! We did exactly as recommended by the clinic in their after care handout (which was very clear and full of necessary information) and it healed up beautifully. After 2 weeks it had healed and we didn't have any problems at all! Our son is now 8 weeks old & it seemed like forever ago that we were giving him salt baths & putting Vaseline in his nappy.
We were very happy with the procedure & results and really pleased with the whole process from beginning to end!
We would definitely recommend the clinic and Dr Ali. We put a lot of faith in him and he delivered! We had read up on other clinics but this seemed to come up with the best reviews. I thought id add to them to put even more confidence in the expertise used in the clinic!
The Duncan family
Cannot recommend this place enough. I was certainly concerned about having the procedure done as any guy my age would be. The sheer clinical efficiency and professional standards of Dr Al-ali and his staff put me completely at ease. Post procedure of course is no walk in the park, there is tenderness that one would expect with this sort of operation. But the dressing and instructions from the team made this time so much easier. I didn't miss a day of work thanks to this, nor did I feel I couldn't be active through the day (although I did miss football for a 4 weeks, but this was to be expected!) All in all 5 months later there is no scaring and no worries, would 100% recommend this practice.
I underwent a re-circumcision at Dr. Al-Ali clinic on August 19th 2013. I have waited a few months before sending my feedback, just because I wanted to see how things were going to evolve. I am pleased with the overall result, and I'd like to thank him. I knew that this was a tricky one as my previous circumcision performed in Italy had been very disappointing non only in terms of cosmetic appearance but also functionality. I wish I'd learnt about Dr Al'-Ali before and decided to circumcise at his clinic instead, that would have saved me 3 years of anxiety and stress, and for sure my penis now would look even better. Dr. Al-Ali had told me that he could not guarantee a perfect cosmetic result as a consequence of first circumcision but promised me that things would definitely improve, removing some extra skin and tidying up the uneven scar left by my first surgery. At first I was a bit doubtful about removing the amount of skin that he thought should be removed, as I was obviously scared there wouldn't be enough skin left then and maybe I would be too tight. However, I trusted him in the end and I did the right thing. I realised very soon that he did an excellent job, and now my penis looks fine and work fine. Scar maybe isn't perfect but Dr Al-Ali could not do better, I'm sure about this. When I first met him for a consultation I had the immediate impression that he knows perfectly what is talking about, and I felt he was probably the only person I could trust, after meeting several other consultants and urologists who had never fully convinced me. Therefore, to anyone who is thinking of having a circumcision or re-circumcision I would definitely recommend this clinic.
Gary - 30 years
I booked the procedure and like anyone would be was very nervous. Dr Ali and his staff soon made me feel at ease. Everything was explained thoroughly and he made sure i was ready before he commenced. The procedure itself is completely pain free and Dr Ali makes sure you cannot feel anything before starting. The procedure took roughly 45mins and after i was ready to go home. Its been almost 2 months since my surgery and everything has heeled up nicely just like Dr Ali said it would. During the first week you will feel pain in the morning due to obvious reasons but if needed you can take pain killers. After the first week i was fine. I want to commend Dr Ali for his safe,clean and professional service and if you need the procedure done i would highly recommend him. Thanks
Adam and Jakub - 6 years & 3 years old
Very satisfied with the procedure of the traditional method. Both kids were done in less than an hour, with no blood and no tears or pain. Fully recovered and got back to normal after 10 days from the procedure.
I highly recommend Dr. Al Ali and his team to anyone who's looking for a trustworthy and experienced doctor to perform such essential treatment for their boys.
A big thank you to Dr. Al Ali and his team from all of us.
Kaleb - 3 months
We got our little boy Kaleb circumcised at the clinic when he was 4 months old. The procedure was quick and I believe Kaleb did not feel any pain at all. It took one week to fully heal and was completely normal during the healing process. People commented how he seemed like he wasn't a baby who got circumcised as he was acting so normal! I am very delighted with Dr. Al-Ali's work. He had a very skilled hand and his work is very precise and it shows in the results. Thank you so much Dr. Al-Ali and his assistant and all members of staff at Circumcision In London. Special thanks to the female receptionist for finding us a quiet spot so I could feed Kaleb after the procedure as he became a very hungry baby! :)
I would like to say a real thank you for a successful and really professionally done operation. The healing process did not take a long time and it was all right. I would like to recommend that clinic, doctor and his assistant to everybody who plans to do this operation.
Daniel - 35 years old
Dr Ali & his team have a truly professional approach, with clear explanation, making you feel very welcome & comfortable.
I was a little nervous as anyone would be, but it was soon clear to me I had made the right choice.
I experienced no pain at any time; the whole experience was just 75 minutes & I am delighted with the end result.
I would certainly recommend Dr Ali to anyone considering a circumcision or a related issue.
P. Jackson - 44 years old
On the day of my Circumcision I was very nervous.In the reception room I was made to feel at ease by the professional and courteous members of staff there. I was directed to a seat, and asked to complete a short form. After a short waiting time the receptionist politely requested my payment. as I sat and waited- I observed how clean and hygienic the reception areas was and this was reassuring for me.
When it was time for my procedure Dr Ali's assistant came out and brought me into the room to meet Dr S. Al Ali. Dr Ali's assistant was very calm, reassuring and helpful. Dr Ali explained to me what was going to happen and he asked me some questions, explaining that their would be no pain during the procedure. I was so nervous that I had to take a quick trip to the bathroom, upon my return Dr Ali continued to explain what he was going to do for me, he was very professional understanding and expressed a high level of experience and confidence in his manner and approach toward me. I started to feel considerably at ease as I prepared myself I reclined onto the operating seat. I was now feeling much more relaxed and after Dr Ali explained to me that I would feel a slight- discomfort at the administration of a local anaesthetic to my penis. I actually barely felt any discomfort at all- and during the circumcision procedure itself I felt completely comfortable and had no pain or ill effects.
When the circumcision was complete Dr Ali explained how I should keep the dressing on and told me what to expect during the next few hours,he also explained how to keep my Penis clean and so forth.
I could walk normally after my circumcision. Before leaving I was given a set of care instructions by the receptionist.
5 weeks later I am very pleased with the results.It is perfectly done,the skills of Dr Ali are amazing. I have a small scarline the procedure was pain-free and took place in a clean environment in the care of professionals.
I actually scheduled to have the procedure elsewhere and had changed my my mind at short notice, in preference to Dr Ali's practice.(I am so glad I did!)
I would recommend this clinic to anyone who is considering having a circumcision done.
Thank you very much to Dr Ali and his Team.
(May Allah reward and bless you all.)

We just want to show our appreciation for the circumcision you performed on our son and the patience you had with us
Robert - 62 years old
There are not many people who have been circumcised twice. Please don’t make the mistake I made in selecting a clinic. Two months ago I decided to go to a Harley Street clinic as I wanted the best. With hindsight I now realise that there was no nameplate on the door and it was a surgery rented by the hour. After the circumcision I had severe bruising to my testicles and along the entire length of my penis that lasted for a week. I had a circular swelling right round the penis, which I later learnt to be oedema. The frenulum snaked up to the scar line where there was a deep indentation looking something like a sharks mouth. It took a good few weeks for me to realise that there was something very wrong with the Harley Street operation and that it was not going to get better over time. I knew there was no point in going back to Harley Street, as any remedial action would likely be as bad as the initial operation.
After some further research on the Internet I came across CIL. The website has some great information including a named doctor with qualifications that you can view. They have premises with a nameplate over the door. They have a real landline telephone number. They are an organization that is tangible.
The second operation went like a dream. Dr Ali-Ali recommended that the frenulum be removed because it was twisted and that the cut be a lot lower because of the oedema. There was no pain involved, no bruising and the stitching is so good that after only two weeks the skin is now smooth across the scar line. The quality of the work was excellent.
Because of my initial flawed choice of a Harley Street clinic, I didn’t end up with the style of circumcision that I had originally wanted. That is the consequence of a bad choice. I do so wish that I had chosen CIL in the first place.
Adil - 5 years old
I had my son circumcision done last year we were very scared but doctor Ali assured us the same way he walks in he will walk out. And he did did not even cry once or ever very surprised and have already recommended to friends and family my son is 5 now thank you guys so much.
Joshua - 4months old
My son (4 months old) recently underwent circumcision. The procedure was thoroughly explained and well carried out. So much so that the ring fell off just a week after. I am very happy with the result and would definitely recommend Dr Al-Ali. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the employees of the Clinic for their professionalism and help.
Musa Hasson - 2 months old
We were unsure where to go to get our son circumcised and heard of this clinic by word of mouth and looking on the internet. We booked an appointment on-line and travelled to the clinic from south-east Kent. Very professional staff. Everything was explained to us via video clip and after care leaflet. Dr Al-Ali explained in detail at every step of the way as to what was being done and demonstrated the effects of the anaesthetic to assure me the procedure was pain free. Very happy with the results. Our Son's GP on examining him for post natal check up said it was very neatly done. A Big thank-you to all Staff and Dr. Al-Ali.
William - 60 years old
About 2009 I began to get trouble with a phimosis. It did not however cause any gigantic problems and after consulting my GP about it (who advised me that the only complete cure would be circumcision) I put the problem on the back burner of my life until I had acquired sufficient information to make a well informed decision about the way forward.
The problem developed into paraphimoses in April 2012 which made circumcision not only inevitable but an urgent requirement! I had been researching circumcision and its history for some months which also led me to read a great deal of argument from the anti circumcision brigade. Although I could see their point about mutilating babies without their consent, I could not for the life of me understand why they were so against grown men making that choice for themselves for whatever reasons. After having had the operation myself I am even more mystified as to their hostility towards it unless this movement is mostly made up of people who have had botched operations which have given them genuine grief in their lives.
I am sixty years old, Anglo/Saxon, Christian, father of two small children, a boy 1 year and a daughter 4 years. My wife is 23 years old and does not rule out having more children so it is important that things in that particular department are in good working order. I am from the far south west of England which is an area where circumcision is uncommon amongst the indigenous population. Indeed, I was told by my mother that shortly after my birth when the subject was mentioned by her then obstetrician she had no idea what he was talking about and upon being informed as to what it was, dismissed the idea of having her new little baby’s penis mutilated totally out of hand! My wife is from South America and although she is descended from European immigrants who moved there a couple of hundred years ago she had also never heard of this practice and became quite alarmed upon having it described to her.
This being the case I dismissed the idea of having the operation done locally by the National Health Service by a surgeon inexperienced with the procedure and to whom it would be just another job, botched or otherwise. I therefore turned my attention to cultures which have been carrying out this practice for many hundreds of years; after all, if you want a good job done we all know there is no substitute for experience. It seemed to boil down to three London clinics which specialised in providing the service mostly for Moslems who have the procedure carried out on virtually all male children at some stage during their young lives. These were the places it appeared, that held a wealth of experience, skill and knowledge on the subject so I endeavoured to research all three as thoroughly as I could with a view to appointing the one that appeared to be the best to carry out the necessary procedure for me. Frankly, it was a bit of a “no contest”; Dr Al-Ali provided the much needed detailed information on his website in its entirety so I contacted the clinic and made an appointment for the 12th July 2012.
I travelled up to London from Devon by train for an appointment in the middle of the day which gave me plenty of time to travel back without arriving home too late at night, It was indeed a pleasure to meet the doctor and his charming assistant in his well equipped and modern surgery in north London and after a short wait I was ushered in for my consultation. Doctor Al-Ali gave the offending appendage a thorough examination and came to the conclusion that it was indeed in a shocking state and required immediate surgical attention. He was adamant that there would be no pain during or after the procedure. At the time I thought this to be quite an extravagant claim considering the sensitivity of the area he was going to operate on and the radical nature of the surgery.
I felt a tiny scratch as the Doctor administered the local anaesthetic to my groin which was the only minimal discomfort I felt for the entire operation. After working through the procedure for some time the full nature of the damage that the paraphimoses had wreaked became apparent and the doctor gently and sympathetically informed me that there was so much damage that he had to advise me that in his opinion not only my scarred and damaged foreskin needed to be removed but my fraenulum also had to go; to my mind this was radical surgery indeed! As a result of my research I had complete faith in Doctor Al-Ali and his vast experience and professionalism so it was a no brainer to accept that much more work needed to be done and that there would of course be an extra cost because there would be a great deal more detailed surgery required than we could have anticipated.
After the procedure Doctor Al-Ali explained in great detail what he had done and how in his opinion the healing process would progress. He was very clear about what I had to do and what I must not do to assist the healing process, instructions I carried out to the letter. He had bandaged the wound in such a way that it was very comfortable and would enable me to go about my daily life with the minimum of fuss. Imagine my surprise 36 hours later when this bandage fell off because the swelling had gone down so incredibly quickly! No matter, the doctor had given me explicit instructions as to what to do in just such an eventuality so it was no big drama.
To say that I was pleased with the result would be a gross understatement; it has boosted the quality of my life considerably and added immeasurable happiness to my married life. When my son is old enough I shall discuss with him the pros and cons of circumcision and make my recommendations to him based on my very happy experience so that he will have a very sound criterion by which to make his decision to be circumcised or not
The Doctor was as good as his word to me about not feeling any pain at any stage which has been a big surprise but a man with such consummate skill, professionalism and experience is very hard to find these days. May Allah bless him and his family for the great good that he does.
Marco - 44 years old
Dr Al-Ali clinic is very very clean and very comfortable. I have been circumcised one year ago and I didn't have not problems at all. Dr Al-Ali is very high skilled and Ali did to me very very excellent job and I was very happy that I have done it in that clinic. Completely pain free and very quick healing. I would recommend Dr Ali to every body.
Alexander and Rosa
We are very pleased that we had our son's circumcision with you, every thing went very well and as we were recommended to you, we with do the same with pleasure.
Paul Davey - 56 years old
First, briefly the reason why: Unlike my 5 brothers who were all circumcised shortly as infants, for some reason I was left intact, despite our mother being a trained nurse and a history of phimosis known to be common in our family. At my own request, after years of putting up with the usual problems of a tight, restrictive foreskin, I was finally circumcised under the NHS in my late teens. It was then a very painful experience, but I accepted it had to be done and was grateful for the help. I’m sure they did their best. That said, I was never happy with the result, my circumcision scar was noticeably uneven, and only extended about half-way down my glans when flaccid, or even partially erect. I still had some discomfort and pinching pressure when my penis naturally retracted into my body, such as when sitting for long periods of time, as in a theatre, or a long car journey, but to be fair this was generally mild, and in the end I just got used to it. A few months ago, having met the lady who was to become my wife, she made it clear at the start that for health reasons, she only ever had sexual relationships with circumcised men, and although she accepted that I had indeed been circumcised, she found the condition of my penis off-putting and she asked me to have a fuller, proper circumcision done at some stage soon after our marriage. I had never heard of recircumcision before but I agreed. We researched this subject on the internet, and this fiinally led us to Dr Al-Ali. The service, from the first phone call to completion was brilliant. I could have had it done some 3 days after my initial e-mail, but I had to settle for a week due to my work requirements. Upon arrival, I was presented with a consent form by the receptionist, a charming lady. I filled out the simple form, paid as politely requested, and very shortly met Dr. Al-Ali, and his assistant, Mohammed, who led me to the operating room and explained the whole process carefully and completely. I stripped as requested and was given a very thorough examination. With the aid if a marker pen, he drew lines around the site as he detailed exactly what he intended to do. This would involve removing some of the remaining inner and outer foreskin to correct the unevenness, and then stitching the cut edges together to create a new scar line, which would then be beveled and relocated at the rear of my glans, giving my penis a much more orthodox-looking circumcision. I was then asked to lie on my back on the very comfortable operating table, and then he began by giving me the local anesthetic. He talked the whole time, constantly telling me what he was about to do, and reassuring me at every stage. He warned me that I would feel a slight scratch each time an injection was given [I think there was a total of three] but because there was virtually no pain I’m not even sure! After a few minutes, he gently tested the area to make certain the numbing agent had worked, and reiterated to me that he would not proceed until he was certain there would be no pain. He told me that he could easily give me further anesthetic if needed. This was not necessary in my case, the whole area was completely numb. He and Mohammed began working away, chatting to me, and it suddenly occurred to me how relaxed I felt, far more so than I would have believed under the circumstances! Never at any stage did I feel the slightest pain, and we chatted about our working lives. Eventually I was told that my re-circumcision was completed and I was ready for the dressing. I was told the operation took much longer than a regular circumcision because extra stitching was needed as the foreskin had already been partially removed. It really didn’t seem like a long time at all, and the time had passed very pleasantly. The dressing was applied and again there was absolutely no pain. I was given exact instructions as to what to do on a printed, laminated sheet, and was told that the anesthetic would wear off in about 3 hours. I should then take paracetamol and perhaps switch to a stronger pain-killer if needed. Also. I could contact them during working hours anytime in the coming weeks. I left the surgery about 2PM, having arrived at midday. The journey back to South London took about 2 hours, not at all bad. I took the pain-killers about an hour later, about 5PM, as instructed. I changed into a tee shirt and light weight jogging bottoms, but kept 2 pairs of underpants on, again as instructed. My wife arrived home about 7pm as usual, and immediately asked for a visual inspection! At this point I noticed that the dressing had come off. Dr. Al-Ali had warned me that in my own case, this would probably happen as my penis retracts into my body rather more than most, a condition known as “hidden” or “buried” penis. However, when I stand up, my penis comes back out by itself, so it never been a real problem. I should perhaps research this a bit more, but then again, the saying “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” comes to mind. I could tell by her expression that she was delighted with the result, then she said that this was exactly how she had imagined how it would look, and I showed her how to replace the dressing, which she did extremely well. We spent a very quiet evening together, she called her parents to tell them the news. As always, they were happy to hear their daughter’s excited voice. “Like a dog with a new bone” I heard her father laughing. They are great people, really. I had strip-down wash at about 10PM, she changed the dressing again and we went to bed. Still no sign of any pain at all, so I took a chance and kept off the pain-killers. I remember from my first circumcision that I was in severe pain at this stage, and couldn’t even sit down. I had to spend 2 days in bed, it was so difficult to move about due to the swelling and bruising. How time changes things! I went back to work as usual the following day, and was still completely pain-free. I got into the routine of changing the dressing after urinating, as it was difficult to stop some urine seeping onto it, especially underneath at the frenulum, making it damp. After day 3, I had my first salt bath, what a pleasure that was. I had dispensed with dressings after day 2, as instructed, and the stitch line was now clearly visible. A beautifully neat job it was. The new scar line was neat, even and sat perfectly naturally and comfortably just below the rim of my glans, exactly as dr.Al-Ali had said. The old feelings of tightness or pressure on the glans from the excess skin were completely absent. The tenderness had all but gone. The only sign of the operation was the stitches, and a very thin, hard-to the touch, almost invisible yellow crust that had formed along the scar line, as the leaflet had predicted. this was the body doing the healing process. Time passed, my pubic hair began to grow back and the stitches began to gradually dissolve. The feeling of my glans rubbing against the material of my underpants felt strange at first, but I quickly got used to it, as I suppose all newly circumcised men must! I know that sometimes, such as when sitting forward, the shaft skin does creep forward and partially cover the glans, causing a slight pressure, but nowhere near to the same extent that it used to, and it feels much, much more natural. Sometimes I had the usual nightly erections, the pulling on the stitches causing me to awaken, this was the only pain source, and it really wasn’t that bad. I just gently compressed my glans with my index finger and thumb, as Dr.Al-Ali had shown me. After about 3 weeks, we resumed our love life, very carefully and gently, and it was fine, more enjoyable than ever. My wife is so much more relaxed now she knows the operation is over, we got exactly the result we imagined and was a real success. There really is no down side. I will conclude with a big thank you from my wife and I to Dr.Al-Ali, Mohammed and the rest of his staff for the job they did for us. The whole experience was professional, friendly and very efficient. This has brought my wife and closer together, she was right all along [as usual.]
I write to thank you so sincerely and from my inner self for the wonderful and professional circumcision done on my son. The speedy recovery is a miracle to me, the stitches have fallen off and my son stopped using creams because the wound is dry and clean. Job well done and may your career flourish in many many years to come.
Lathan Ossei Sarfo - 5 weeks old
I started internet search looking for a place to circumcise my little boy, having found Dr.Ali's website i took the number down. Prior to that I had already asked a good friend to give me the contact details of the person who circumcised her 3 sons, the number she gave me happened to be the same as Dr. Ali's. I then became confident even before i made the appointment. The guy i spoke to when making the appointment was polite and also confirmed it through text message. As a registered nurse, i knew the importance of infection control measures and had planned to ask serious questions in case they are not adhered to during the procedure. But Dr. Ali was just excellent in everything, step step explanation throughout the procedure,aseptic technique followed, reassurances and what to do post procedure. His assistant was also helpful and the secretary great. Is about 2 weeks now since my son's circumcision and the finished work is excellent, perfect and neat. Dr. Ali, many thanks. I will recommend Dr. Ali 100% to anyone who wants male circumcision in London and even outside London because the place is not difficult to find. I really have alot to say but cannot put everything here. BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL. God Bless
