Paediatrician

Circumcisions are only done for definite medical or religious reasons. If this applies to your son the operation can be done at his age. Please speak to your doctor.

If its for religious reasons its usually done a few days after birth. If it is for medical reasons, it is only done when a problem actually develops.

Hi,
The best time to take him is hen he makes an informed decision as an adult and wishes this for himself.
