Circumcision -- Mogen Technique

Designed by Rabbi Harry Bronstein in 1954, the Mogen clamp is the one most commonly used by mohels for ceremonial circumcision.

The Mogen clamp has the advantages of being rapidly performed and not leaving a foreign body at the circumcision site. The disadvantage is that the device does not directly protect the glans during the procedure.
