What is pediatric circumcision?
This is the surgical removal of foreskin from the penis of a male infant. At birth, the penis has a protective sleeve of tissue called the foreskin, covering the glands or the head. The foreskin can usually be pulled back to expose the glands of the penis by puberty.

How is the circumcision performed?
During the pediatric circumsion procedure a small slit will be made in the foreskin and it will be loosened from the head.

The caregiver will place a device over the glands. This device will protect the penis, allowing the foreskin to be safely removed. If a plastic device is used, the caregiver will tie the foreskin to the ring.

Then, the foreskin will be trimmed and the ring will be left in place, and will fall off in five to seven days, leaving a healed circumcision.
