Circumcision in newborn

Nerve Sparing Esthetic Circumcision


The circumcision procedure is fairly common for newborn boys in certain parts of the world, including the United States. In the U.S., about 55% of newborns are circumcised shortly after birth.

The newborn can be circumcised after urological examination not to overlook a kongenital abnormality.

The newborn who has bleeding disorders or has a family story of bleeding diathesis must not be circumcised using  traditional techniques. As the bleeding is only at capillary level  in nerve sparing esthetic circumcision technique (NES), the newborn can be circumcised without the need of bleeding tests.

In the newborn period healing process is short as the cell renewal and wound healing rate are very fast.
