where is circ done?

With my first ds, the pediatrician came to the hospital the day after he was born and preformed the circ there.

He no longer is visiting newborns in the hospital, and says he does the circs in his office at the 1 week appointment, or we can have the pedi on call at the hospital preform the circ.

Has anyone heard of having this done in an office and not the hospital?

Re: where is circ done?

In MA it's the OB's that do the circs. I had my DS1 done in the office at 1 wk old. I'm an RN in L&D, but had to deliver at another hospital due to prematurity. There was no way I was letting a doc I didn't know snip my little guy.

Jews have a pediatrician/mohel do a circumcision at home at 1 week (clearly it doesn't require a hospital setting!). Definitely better to do it on day 7 since he will bleed less. Something about vit K levels.

Both of my boys had theirs done in the hospital one by the on call ped and the other by one of the OBs in the practice that I used

Yes, they are not performed in the hospital that I had my kids at. We didn't circ, but my midwife made sure to tell me that if we wanted it done it had to be done after he left the hospital since they do not perform them there.

We didn't circ but my friend who got her DS done had to make an appointment with some sort of specialist and it was done outside of the hospital.

DFS was done by the doc on call in the hospital. The hospital my girls were born at has one doc who does them all (he is apparently quite good at it), and they give you numbing gel an hour beforehand, then do a local anesthesia while they do it.

Ok. I didn't realize doing it outside of the hospital was the norm. I was freaking out because I prefer our pedi to do it. He takes several steps to ensure baby is numbed and such before hand.

My boys were both done in the hospital, one in Pontiac, MI, one in Cape Coral, FL... Just a couple weeks ago, there was a kid at my ped that had it done. Poor boy cried for 30 minutes straight! I thought it was just shots!
