We currently offer circumcision for newborns up to 1 month of age in our office. Circumcision is an elective procedure. It’s your choice whether or not to have your son circumcised. It is not required by law or by hospital policy. Scientific studies show some medical benefits of circumcision, but these benefits are not sufficient enough for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to recommend that all infant boys be circumcised. The AAP does recommend, however, that parents discuss the benefits and risks of circumcision with their pediatrician and then make an informed decision.
