Absolute Medical Services offers specialised procedures at our practice including infant circumcisions and tongue tie release assessment and procedure.

Infant Circumcision 

Dr Schulze performs infant circumcisions on boys up to 3 months of age at the Practice. If you are considering circumcision for your infant we strongly recommend you make an appointment as soon as possible as the waiting list can be lengthy. 

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and a follow-up check is carried out about a week later.

The cost as of 1st October 2017 for the service is $650.00, with a Medicare refund of approximately $100.00. A deposit of $150 will be taken at the time of your booking to secure your date, this will need to be paid via credit card. The remaining amount will be paid at the appointment , for this payment we accept EFTPOS, cash and all major credit cards. If you would like to discuss any aspects of the procedure or make an appointment, please call on 4328 5200 and we will be able to answer any questions you may have

Infant Tongue-Tie Release

Tongue-Tie is where a thin piece of skin under the baby's tongue is abnormally short and may restrict the movement of the tongue tip. Sometimes this can interfere with a baby's ability to suckle efficiently. If you are advised that your baby suffers from this condition by a lactation consultant, experienced clinician or you are experiencing problems with feeding.

Dr Schulze can conduct a thorough assessment and can determine whether a Tongue-Tie release is required. In the Absence of Dr Schulze, Dr Metcalfe can also conduct a thorough assessment and determine whether a Tongue-Tie release is required. 

Absolute Medical Services features in "Babies on the coast" Magazine with an article on Tongue Tie by our own Dr John Schulze on Pg 12.
