What is Circumcision?
Boys are born with a hood of skin, called the foreskin, covering the head of the penis. In circumcision, the foreskin is surgically removed, exposing the end of the penis. Circumcision rates have been estimated at around 60% nationally in Australia. Please click below to learn more about baby circumcision at our clinic.
