circumcision benefits

  PRESENTATION OF CIRCUMCISION METHODS AND LOCAL ANESTHESIA:
 


There are 3 acceptable methods for newborn circumcision (NC): 1) Plastibell method, 2) Gomco clamp, and 3) Mogen clamp. All 3 methods should be done with local anesthesia. The key to a quick, safe, painless NC depends more on the experience of the operator than on the method used. The methods of local anesthesia include dorsal penile nerve block (DPNB), ring block and anesthetic cream. Having the baby suck on a sucrose (sugar) pacifier also decreases pain.
