Infant Circumcision

The ideal age is between 5-10 days. If the baby is unwell, this will necessitate some minor delay until he has recovered. Circumcision can be easily performed up to 1 month of age and I will not perform a circumcision on a baby older than 1 month of age. The younger the baby is, the easier it is on him, and the adage “the sooner, the better” certainly applies.
