Hi
Dr Dilley did our sons willy, if its the same one he is in Menai,.He did it when our youngest was 5 weeks old and healed up in about 4 days. Nappy changes were tuff as he screamed the house down when we applied the antibotic ointment but found if we lined the inside of his nappy in vasoline the healing time was quicker. Our other son was done at 6 months, and took about 10 days to heal. It breaks your heart when they are in pain but its the best decision my hubby and i have ever made.
Hope all goes well.
Thank you, thats the one he is at Menai, Randwick & Gymea. Bub will be done b4 5wks, just wanted to ake sure other parents were happy with him.

Hi, we went to Dr Dilly at menai. Our son got done at I think about 5 weeks. Dilly was good and we never had any trouble after the procedure. I know a few people that have used him and all had good results too.
Thanks channy-30 for sharing your experience. Its a big decision and if you make it, you want to be sure you are using a great dr.
Which after doing some research he probably does the most babies in NSW and being a Paediatric Surgeon at the childrens hospital is reassuring.

What are the costs involved and how do I go about getting a referral?
Hi

We had our son done at 6 weeks by Dr Dilley and had no problems at all . Healed up very well , just hard when you get home with the nappies etc .

We just got a referral from our GP and it cost $600.00 and we got about $150.00 back from Medicare hope this helps

We had our son done at 6 weeks. Well, the healing went well,not much pain etc, the baby was calm and slept fine. BUT BEWARE - Dr Dilley forgets to mention that you should keep on pressing on your baby's "fat pad" (that is the fat area on both sides of his penis) with two fingers to avoid the skin getting re-attached to the head of the penis. That happened to us, we had to go back a few weeks after and pull the re-attached skin back down with local anaesthetic cream. The baby was fine however. ANOTHER THING - our son is 6 months now and I have now realised that Dr Dilley did not circumcised him enough.. Yep, there is still lots of skin around the head and I have to keep on pulling it back to clean, so you get the point. I recently went to a male Jewish GP who told me he sees this type of circumcision all the time lately and he calls it a "token" circumcisio by medical practitioners , that is only a small piece of foreskin is taken....
Dr Dilley is a good doctor, the operartion went well, was quick and easy, everything healed well, but.. that's what happened to us. Iam going to go back to Dr Dilley to possibleydo another circumcision, there is way too much skin still on in my opinion sad

I' don't know Dr Dilley but my little man was done by Dr Harry Merkur at Blacktown. FANTASTIC!!!! $350 upfront then $106 back from Medicare. He cried for less than 5 mins during and after the procedure. THAT'S IT!!! No problems with nappy changes, baths etc. The bell fell of at 4 days and excellent outcome. I can't recommend him enough.
We used Dr Dilley for both our sons and i highly recommend him. He was fantastic, not just for the job he did with the surgery but also how supportive and understanding he was. He had a packed waiting room but took the time to explain the entire procedure to us, ask us if we had any worries or concerns, invited us to call any time after the operation if we wanted to ask questions - he definitely treated us with a far superior level than most doctors and pediatricians, particularly since he does dozens of the operations each week. It cost us $730 and you claim $230 of that back from Medicare. You get a referral from your GP. We had both boys done at 6 weeks and they healed fine in a week or so.
