Male Circumcision

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This six-page illustrated handout educates parents and other caregivers about male circumcision, which is a surgical procedure to remove the foreskin, the skin around the end of the penis. It provides basic information about male circumcision, and explains what will happen during the procedure. It discusses what to do after the procedure, and contains check boxes where a healthcare provider can indicate if they used the clamp method with dissolving stitches, or a plastic ring with no stitches. The document provides recommendations for home care, and identifies those symptoms for which the baby's doctor should be called.
