In competent hands the risks of circumcision are almost minimal. Is that, circumcision is considered to be a basic entry-level technique. When I was in medical school, I went to the local county hospital and the intern taught me how to do a circumcision, the next day I was told I would do a circumcision.
So here I am, medical student right out of basic science there’s very little hands-on experience, and I’m doing newborn circumcisions without anybody supervising. That was wrong. I know I did a good job because I had a beautiful penis when I was done, but that was not right. It’s an easy procedure to do but it’s also very easy to do it wrong, to have complications, and so it needs to be a trained, experienced doctor who is competent in doing circumcisions who is doing them. Not just an intern, not just someone who wants to do it occasionally.
Urologists are obviously the logical choice because we’re trained in surgical management of genital and urological abnormalities. Many obs do circumcisions, many and many pediatricians. But whoever does it, it should be somebody who knows what they’re doing, they’ve done it a lot, they have a great track record.
