Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin from the penis and the procedure can be done in our office in most cases. The decision to circumcise your son is a personal and family decision. There are some cases where circumcision is medically recommended as well, such as when a boy is born with certain abnormalities of the urinary tract in order to reduce the risk of urinary tract infection.

We strive to make the circumcision process simple for your family and comfortable for your child.
