what is infant circumcision?
Infant circumcision is a surgical procedure in which the skin covering the end of the penis is removed. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there is a small risk of infection. However, newborn males who undergo this procedure must be monitored closely to avoid complications.
We use a lidocaine block to ensure the entire penis is numb for the procedure and it usually only takes only 10 to 20 minutes. After the procedure, we will walk you through detailed aftercare as well as what to expect. Most babies recover quickly without complications. If you have any concerns, be sure to let us know as your son recovers from the procedure.
till when can newborn circumcision be performed?
If you’re a new parent, you may be wondering when is the best time to get your baby circumcised. Most newborns can be circumcised within two days of birth. However, some babies may need to wait a few days until they are stable enough to tolerate the procedure. The process itself usually takes about ten to twenty minutes.
the risks and benefits of circumcision
Circumcision is a choice that has both medical risks and benefits. We are happy to discuss these with you at a visit if you would like guidance as you make your decision.
It has traditionally been done for religious or cultural reasons. Parents must weigh the health benefits and risks in light of their own religious, cultural, and personal preferences.
why choose a pediatric doctor for the circumcision procedure?
Nonprofessionals have traditionally carried out newborn circumcision procedure(s) in many parts of the world. Some parents may still choose a religious or non-medical setting in modern times. However, we strongly recommend that circumcision always be performed by an experienced, trained, and licensed physician. That’s where Here We Grow Pediatrics can help you.
While you are free to choose anyone to perform your child’s circumcision, we strongly recommend that you choose the safest options. That’s because a lot can go wrong, and that’s why a licensed professional will start with an evaluation of the penis before performing a circumcision.
