Canadian Journal of Urology: Are physicians performing neonatal circumcisions well-trained?

Quite shocking to read that most of the Canadian Doctors in this study of surgical method and training had not received formal training for conducting infant MGM, and know less than might be expected about when not to do it …

Great that the medical community addressed the training issue after the study but sad that nobody thinks of the rights of the children here …

” … Conclusions: Our survey findings indicate that most physicians performing neonatal circumcisions in our community have received informal and unstructured training. This lack of formal instruction may explain the complications and unsatisfactory results witnessed in our pediatric urology practice. Many practitioners are not aware of the contraindications to neonatal circumcision and most non-surgeons perform the procedure without being able to handle common post-surgical complications. Based on our survey findings, we planned and carried out a formal training course to address these issues.”
