Newborn Circumcision: The Controversy Revisited

ORLANDO, FL ( - Dr. Byron Joyner moderated a point counter-point discussion on neonatal circumcision. Dr. Paul Austin discussed pros and Robert Van Howe the cons. The jury is still out, but the take home message was that circumcision is not without its complications and one of these complications is death. It appears to be a risky procedure with truly little medical indication in the newborn period.

Moderated by Byron Joyner, MD, at the Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA) - May 17 - 22, 2008. Orange County Convention Center - Orlando, Florida, USA.
