Good luck on your search. Statistics show that in young to middle aged men, the incidence of medically necessary circumcision after all conservative therapies have failed in about 6 in 100,000. In seniors, the incidence is slightly higher as diabetics sometimes have problems with the phimotic band becoming inelastic. However, I'm sure this is a minor problem considering all of the other problems diabetics have. This condition typically affects men past the age of 60. The number of men that have medically necessary circumcisions is dwarfed by the number of men who are restoring what was taken from them.
