Obstetricians perform most circumcisions within days of the baby’s birth, before the mother and baby leave the birthing hospital. However, some newborns are not candidates for circumcision immediately after birth, due to an urgent medical problem, prematurity or other health concern. Pediatric urologists in our Circumcision Clinic provide outpatient consults for these children and can perform the surgery on an outpatient basis when it is safe to do so.
The clinic is for healthy babies who weigh 12 pounds or less. When performing the circumcision, our care team uses local anesthesia, which means less pain and lower cost.
Appointments are available at our Burnet campus. Contact the Circumcision Center at 513-636-4975, option 1.
