Male Infant Circumcision

Deciding whether to circumcise your newborn boy is an important choice for parents.  Circumcision is an elective procedure to remove the foreskin that covers the tip of the penis. Some parents choose to have their sons circumcised because of hygiene, potential health benefits, or for religious, social, or cultural reasons. Circumcision is not essential to a child’s health, so parents should consider the risks and benefits before deciding if they want it done for their child.
