As a nurse that worked in pediatrics I can say that all circumcisions I witnessed were done with NO anesthetics. It is not standard to use it where I have worked.

If any numbing agents are used the docs don't wait for it to take effect. They slap on the gel and go to cutting, or use the nerve block but immediately start cutting. They don't wait long enough or the anesthetic to take effect.
