Tight foreskin corrective surgery. Surgeon operating on the foreskin of a 2-year-old boy with recurrent balanitis. Balanitis is the inflammation of the glans (end) of the penis. Here, the recurrent inflammation has caused the foreskin to become tight around, and adhere to, the glans. The surgeon is dividing the adhesions in order to release the foreskin without the need for circumcision.
