Newborn circumcision is typically performed by an obstetrician or pediatrician in the postpartum unit of a hospital prior to discharge. Once a baby is discharged from the hospital, he may not be readmitted to the newborn unit. Therefore, if the circumcision was–for some reason–postponed, it must be performed in an outpatient setting.
In addition, women increasingly are delivering in a birthing center or home. These babies are denied the privilege of being admitted to the newborn unit of a hospital for circumcision. Moreover, premature babies are being discharged from the hospital weighing as little as four pounds. Circumcision in these babies is often technically difficult, and may need to be delayed until after hospital discharge.
Few, if any, obstetricians or pediatricians, however, are equipped to perform circumcisions in the office. Most pediatric urologists are happy to perform circumcisions, but only after the baby is six months of age and with a general anesthetic. From a medical standpoint, it is a safer and more cost effective to perform circumcision with a local anesthetic while the baby is under 30 days of age. Moreover, most parents do not want to wait until their baby is six months old, and are fearful of general anesthesia. Unfortunately, parents of these newborn babies are confronted with limited options.
Dr. Craig Singer is one of a select number of physicians in the Detroit Metropolitan Area capable of performing newborn circumcision in an office setting. He is honored to offer his expertise to families in need of his service.
