An infant circumcision is often undertaken for cultural, religious or medical reasons.

Our Muslim families circumcise their sons in accordance with their traditions, and many other families simply choose to carry on a family tradition or seek the health benefits that may come from circumcision, some of the benefits include:

  • It reduces the risk of urinary tract infection.
  • It reduces the risk of penile infection also called Balanoposthitis, potentially preventing a painful problem and its treatment.
  • It eliminates the need for circumcision later in life when up to 6% of boys will require a circumcision because of various medical problems.
  • It reduces the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases including Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and AIDS (HIV).
  • It reduces the risk of penile cancer and cervical cancer in women.
  • Circumcised men have less risk of sexual dysfunction later in life.

They may be concerned that they could be doing a procedure on an otherwise healthy baby that may cause pain or complications.

They wonder whether their child will wish that he had not been circumcised at a later time.

Some parents can be less interested in following cultural and religious traditions.

They are unsure of the medical reasons in favor of a circumcision.

There are reasons not to circumcise, as there are reasons to do so. Dr Hunt’s opinion is that the decision is a personal one that you will make within your family. Please read the information on this site, and others, and contact us anytime with questions. Thanks.

Circumcision Consideration & Research

It is Dr Hunt’s position that when parents are making a decision about circumcision they should be advised of the present state of medical knowledge about its benefits and harms.

The parental decision may ultimately be based on personal, religious or cultural factors. You will make a well informed decision for your son.

Newborn circumcision, when performed properly, is quick and safe. The medical benefits accrue from infancy through to old age.

For more information on the risks and benefits of circumcision, please visit our Media page to find links to original policy statements and studies – including a 2016 paper published in the Journal of Urology which concludes that the benefits of circumcision may have been previously understated. The authors (including Dr Neil Pollock) find that circumcision affords important benefits to males throughout their lives.

Circumcision FAQ’s

Circumcision is a simple procedure in which the foreskin that sheathes the head of the penis is removed. Since foreskin traps bacteria and other infectious agents, its removal may improve genital hygiene and reduce the risk of disease over the lifetime of a boy and his future sexual partners when an adult.

In 2012, the American Academy of Paediatrics issued a statement that the health benefits of circumcision outweighed the risks. Thus, circumcision for your son is a personal decision that you make with your partner after weighing up the benefits and risks.

For adults, it is a personal decision based on personal, cosmetic or health reasons.

Circumcision has been the topic of debate for many decades. In the past, procedures were deemed unnecessary and stressful by some, but times have changed. Due to medical advancements, doctors can conduct a virtually pain less circumcision procedure that is quick, effective and successful with the benefits of circumcision being more widely understood.

There are now many significant studies and associated evidence linking circumcision to improved health and lower incidences of serious and deadly diseases.

The evidence of the benefits of circumcision, coupled with medical advancements and improved circumcision techniques has resulted in increased public awareness, acceptance and a vast increase in the demand for circumcision. The medical team at the Gentle Procedures Clinic perform all circumcisions using The Pollock Technique™

Our doctors and staff are educated and trained, we are dedicated to making your experience with us as pleasant as possible and there are NO surprises upon arrival with us.

There are health benefits to circumcision and there are reasons not to circumcise. Our recommendation is you gather the information provided to you so you can make an informed decision.

Circumcision is also part of both Judaism and Islam and many Christians and people of other religious backgrounds choose circumcision for health and cosmetic reasons, or to continue family tradition.

Many Australian men are circumcised, as infant circumcision was routinely performed on the majority of males born in the 1970’s, for health reasons

There are different circumcision techniques practiced by different doctors around the world but the main “circumcision types” are simply circumcised and uncircumcised.

We are occasionally asked about a “tight circumcision” or a “low circumcision”, but our method is designed to give the same result in all cases and we do not offer a choice of different circumcision types. We apply our method in all cases except where a patient may present with a unique situation requiring a unique approach.

At Gentle Procedures Queensland Clinic we perform all circumcisions using The Pollock Technique™, we believe it to be safe and a comfortable method for circumcision.

The method we use minimises pain for the patient via application of the following multiple modalities:

  • Panadol before the procedure (age and weight restrictions apply)
  • Numbing cream applied at home to lower any pain from 2 specific components of the procedure.
    • One – when the local anaesthetic is administered via a needle.
    • Two – when the clamp is fitted.
  • A dorsal penile block that removes all feeling from the penis (better known as a nerve block)
  • Sugar balls for infants (not used for adult circumcision)
  • Post circumcision follow-up to quickly spot any issues, you will be provided Dr Hunt’s mobile phone number.
  • Environmental factors in the procedure room to maximise the patient’s comfort. We maintain the temperature at a warm and comfortable level and may play music to help provide a calm ambiance during the brief operation.

It is possible to get baby boys circumcised in a non-medical setting for religious reasons. We strongly recommend that even in this case the circumcision be performed only by trained, experienced, and licensed doctors. Many ritual circumcision practitioners meet this criteria, and some may not.

If you are considering a circumcision done by someone who may not be a licensed doctor, we recommend a careful evaluation of their credentials.

We recommend you contact our office to discuss this further and our staff can guide you through the procedure performed at any of our clinics, we operate from the Gold Coast, Underwood, Bowen Hills and Toowoomba.

We have minimal waiting times to ensure we can deliver the procedure at the time and age of your choice.
