Project Description

Precise. Consistent. Circumcision.

AccuCirc®is a state-of-the art medical device designed to fully protect newborn males from inadvertent injury during circumcision. The innovative design improves accuracy and ensures an excellent outcome regardless of the experience of the provider.

Flexible Probe & Shielding Ring

AccuCirc utilizes a simple two-step process to provide precise, consistent results.

First, the flexible foreskin probe and shielding ring is put into place to protect the tip of the penis and accurately position the foreskin prior to making the incision. Once the newborn is prepared and protected, the clamp performs the circumcision with a single actuation, eliminating bulky clamps, painful pins and freehand scalpels, significantly simplifying the procedure. These two parts work together to protect the infant, provide convenience for the physician, and shorten the procedure time.

Complete Kit

The AccuCirc device is a single use, disposable device that comes in a pre-packaged kit with all of the instruments and supplies required to perform newborn male circumcision. The AccuCirc has several safety features that set it apart from any other male circumcision device.

The AccuCirc device was specifically designed by a team of engineers and physicians to overcome the limitations that exist with the three conventional circumcision devices. The AccuCirc device has been specifically designed to protect patients from inadvertent injury during the procedure. These benefits include:

1. A surgical pen mark is always used to help guide the incision and reduce the risk of removing too much or too little tissue.
2. Conventional devices require that a dorsal slit or extra incision is made to place the shield. The AccuCirc does not require this incision. By eliminating this extra incision, the AccuCirc eliminates the risk of injuring the urethra.
3. Not all of the conventional devices use a shield to protect the tip of the penis. The AccuCirc uses a shield that ensures the tip of the penis is protected from injury during the procedure. This protects against penile amputation and injury.
4. Some conventional devices require multiple parts that can be mismatched and lead to injuries during the procedure. The AccuCirc device eliminates this risk by ensuring that only correct sized parts can be used together. The device will not allow mismatched parts to be used together, ensuring that the tip of the penis is always protected.
5. Some conventional devices use a tourniquet and require that a plastic shield stays on the penis for several days. These retained parts can cause serious complications and even death. The AccuCirc device does not use a tourniquet and the AccuCirc device is removed immediately following the procedure completely eliminating these risks associated with retained parts.
6. None of the conventional devices have a means to easily adjust the foreskin prior to making the incision. The AccuCirc uses a foreskin holder that allows for very accurate positioning of the foreskin. This improves accuracy and reduces the risk of removing too much or too little tissue.
7. Two of the conventional devices are made of steel and are used multiple times, requiring reprocessing. Reprocessing these clamps over and over can cause damage and wear that can lead to a malfunction of the device and injury. The AccuCirc is a single use device and is disposed after each use. This guarantees its sterility and prevents injuries from worn and damaged parts.
8. Use of the conventional devices can sometimes result in removing too much tissue. The AccuCirc has a safety guard to help ensure that this does not occur. The safety guard helps ensure the correct amount of tissue, and no more, is removed during the procedure.
9. Two of the conventional devices require a scalpel to make the incision and the misplacement of the scalpel can lead to penile injury. The AccuCirc uses a proprietary circular blade that is delivered precisely by the device itself, ensuring that during the incision the tip of the penis is protected.
10. The AccuCirc is a single use, disposable, device and can be used in clinics and areas of the world that lack the infrastructure to reprocess clamps.

During heterosexual intercourse the HIV virus enters the male body through the inner mucosa of the foreskin. By removing the foreskin, the HIV virus has a much more difficult time entering the male body. Male circumcision has been scientifically proven to provide lifelong protection against heterosexual acquisition of HIV. This protection is significant and has led the World Health Organization to recommend male circumcision as a means to prevent the spread of HIV.
Yes. The World Health Organization (WHO), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), the American Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Urological Association (AUA) have all published guidelines stating that the benefits of newborn circumcision outweigh the risk of the procedure.
The Ministry of Health of Botswana in conjunction with researchers at the Harvard Botswana partnership evaluated the AccuCirc against two conventional devices and found the AccuCirc to be safer and easier to use. Botswana is the first Country in Africa to institute a national newborn male circumcision program for the purpose of HIV prevention and providing other health benefits. After evaluating the conventional devices, the ministry of health chose the AccuCirc for use for their national program.
In the United States the use of the AccuCirc is restricted to Newborn Male Circumcision Centers of Excellence. These centers and their providers have undergone special training in newborn male circumcision and have undergone comprehensive training on how to use the AccuCirc. These centers are carefully certified and monitored to ensure excellence.
Zimbabwe has evaluated the AccuCirc in a large clinical trial in anticipation of starting a national newborn male circumcision program. Kenya is currently evaluating the AccuCirc for their national program. Based on the success of the AccuCirc in Botswana and Zimbabwe, other countries are considering using the AccuCirc for their national newborn male circumcision programs.
