And thank you for editing. My eye can stop twitching now
and they are not a 'one off' procedure.
Geez I think I've heard everything now LMAO
The drs that performed my ds's circ's were specilised in that field, they were trained to do it, they weren't just regular gp's. They were both specialists in neonatal paediatrics. The procedure can no longer be performed in public hospitals and when children are circ'd when they are older it is done in a theatre by a surgeon under GA so it is a load of b****** that any old dr can perform the procedure.

J37 saidHow much of those 8 years is spent studying the functions of the foreskin?It took me 8 years to get my Medical Degree.
Hopefully the situation is better than in the US. I know a doctor there who said they learn nothing about the foreskin in medical school. A lot of circs are still being done there without painkillers. Ob/gyns are the worst offenders, who are generally not trained in their use, so they don't use them.
Every now and then a parent does a DIY circ over there. They often botch them, causing them to be charged (but not for circing).
