The circumcision of your newborn requires precision and the experience of a medical professional who has performed prior circumcisions. You can trust Salinas Pediatric Medical Group to perform this surgical procedure in a delicate manner. Newborn circumcision requires the removal of the penile foreskin. This procedure is performed in our office for infants who are 28 days old and younger. We implement several measures to reduce discomfort during the circumcision process, keeping your little one calm throughout the entirety of the procedure.
We use a Marcaine or lidocaine injection along with additional measures such as dipping the infant’s pacifier in sweetened water so he or she remains as peaceful and quiet as possible throughout the procedure. Our surgeons are specifically trained in performing newborn circumcisions so you should not be even slightly hesitant to trust our team to perform this procedure on your little bundle of joy. We also provide follow-up guidance after the procedure is performed for proper evaluation and healing. We ask that you let us know prior to your newborn circumcision appointment if you have a family history of disorders relating to bleeding or if your little one has had bleeding issues.
