We are often asked if we perform circumcisions at Southwest Pediatrics. Yes we do. We prefer that the
circumcision be performed before the baby is two weeks old. We will accept infants up to three weeks
of age. Infants over three weeks of age, premature infants, and infants with special needs are accepted
on a case by case basis. Please call our office for more information.
We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for newborn circumcision and always use pain
control techniques and careful sterile techniques. Our doctors were trained to perform the procedure
by a specialist in pediatric urology.
We understand that new parents have many expenses related to their newborn and we try to keep our
fee as low as possible.
