Boys of any age can have a circumcision performed; the optimal time is during the first two weeks after birth. Families should make an effort to have their child’s circumcision performed as early as possible since newborns feel less pain, heal faster, and have a lesser chance of complications. However, circumcision can also be performed on older babies, toddlers, teenagers and adults.
Dr. Pollock, originator of the Pollock Technique™ circumcision, has published a study that demonstrates the efficacy of a pain management strategy. Many newborns fall asleep throughout the brief procedure. Most infants feel very little or no pain.
