    As to analgesia, this is what the statement says:
    "Eutectic Mixture of Local Anesthetics (EMLA) was reported to be
    superior to placebo, however dorsal penile nerve block (DPNB) is superior to both sucrose and EMLA and is considered the analgesia of choice for newborn
    circumcision, but does require some special training for its effective application and avoidance of complications."
    Every public hospital in Victoria that I have ever worked at (except those who do not admit patients under 16), has a REGULAR, Elective, "Paediatric Circ" list in their Operating Theatres, with an Anaesthetist who performs the sacral nerve block, and a Paediatric Surgeon. So you are incorrect.

    And before you get snippy (pardon the pun), I have worked at a large number of public hospitals in my time. Have you?

    If you believe I have posted incorrect information in this thread, please quote and we can discuss.

    It seems to me that so far most of the errors and emotionalism have come from sources other than me.

    Actually, quite a number of errors have been made by you.

    This may just be the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. My DS is not circ'd, but honestly this just seems totally ludicrous.

    Victoria discontinued elective circumcision in public hospitals in 2007, as per this article from The Age at the time.

    Default Circumcision increases risk of ASD

    I'm sorry I can't help but chuckle a little ....Just as with the vax issue there are Dr Google experts on here!

    Unless people have a medical degree stop trying to pretend like you know all the facts - don't ***(edited so as not to offend) circumcise your kid*** unless a trained medical professional recommends it (and no doctor shopping to find the one doctor in 100 who will do what you want eitther you cheeky monkeys!) And if a trained medical professional recommends your boy gets the snip, don't ignore them just to make a stand.

    For the most part Doctor knows bests not Shazza or Frankie from Sunnyvale.

    Be very careful of the wording here...if the parents are concerned about the future risk of infection if they do not have their child circumcised, then this is sufficient indication for a Surgeon in the public system to perform an elective circ. And this is what actually happens.

    (Whether this perceived risk is real or not, the circ can still be done electively in the public system. Just because the government wants to reduce expenditure; this does not translate to what ACTUALLY happens).
