AAP Update on Male
Circumcision
A recent AAP update about male circumcision raised many doubts about
this common procedure. It is up to the doctor to decide if it is safe for newborns. The procedure involves removing
the foreskin (penis) from the area. To ensure safety the doctor sterilizes this area.
The procedure takes only a few minutes. During the procedure the
patient will feel well-fed and comfortable. If you
sure, ask your physician.

There are many factors that can affect the benefits and risks of circumcision
for newborn males. For some families, the medical benefits are worth the potential
risks. Parents of
newborn boys must learn how to care and avoid painful procedures. Male circumcision should be performed by a medically trained
practitioner using sterile techniques. A baby’s discomfort can be reduced by effective pain management. Although there are some potential risks,
many babies recover quickly.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued guidelines
regarding newborn male circumcision. Aside from the pain, the process is very invasive and
requires a high level of anesthesia.
American College of Nurse Midwives recognizes the ability of
midwives to perform a male circumcision. It is not a routine service provided by a
midwife, but it is part of the expanded scope of practice for midwives. It should only ever be done with the consent of the father and
mother.
The United
States has seen a decrease in the prevalence of male circumcision in infants. According to the study, this decrease
will lead to a higher incidence of cancer and sexually transmitted diseases in young boys. It is
estimated that the cost will be $4.4 billion over a period of 32 years. It’s also important to mention that the
American College of Nurse Midwives accepts the ability of midwives perform a newborn male
sexcision. However, this practice should not be routinely performed and
should be done according to parental preferences.
Male circumcision has been
practiced for thousands upon thousands of years. However, it only became a medical procedure
in late 19th century. While its historical
benefits include improved genital hygiene and decreased risk of disease, it also results in some
complications and is not recommended for all babies. While this is an improvement, it is still not the only reason for
a circumcision. Despite the risks involved, some countries
continue to perform the procedure. In Canada, a third of infants are still circumcised before the
age of five.
The American Academy of Pediatrics published a policy regarding
the risks and benefits of male circumcision in newborns. While the procedure may have health benefits for a newborn, it has been proven
to cause more problems in babies who undergo the procedure. It is not recommended for babies under the age of one. The baby cannot be reborn due to the
scarring.
The American Academy of Pediatrics published a policy in 1999 on newborn male
circumcision. Both methods have their risks and benefits, but parents
should consider their cultural and ethnic preferences before deciding whether to circumcise their
child. It is not recommended for
all babies. However, some doctors may recommend it for religious reasons. However, it is best to discuss the procedure beforehand with
your doctor.
The American Academy of Family Physicians’ policy
regarding circumcision outlines both the risks and the benefits. The practice is not widely accepted by the
United States, however it is very common in many other countries. While
the procedure is generally accepted as safe, some parents don’t like the appearance of their
baby’s penis. They may choose to have
it removed. This is not a legal requirement for the United States, but
is recommended in some countries.
There are a few
caveats in the American Academy of Pediatrics’ circumcision policy. The procedure itself isn’t harmful, but it
does pose certain risks. A study found that 4-5 male newborns who underwent a circumcision within their first month
were less likely to develop a UTI later in life. However, this study was limited to a small sample of the
population and was based on one small study. It is impossible to predict if a newborn male will get a UTI
from a large group of people.
