    Question circumcision - info not debate.

    Hi I am wondering if anyone could recommend a specialist in brisbane, southside.

    It looks like our poor little boy has to have this done, He is 13 months, due to frequent infections.

    Just wondering if anyone has had a good experience or has heard of a great doctor doing this???



    Will be seeing GP tomorrow. So will definately ask, But word of mouth when it comes to tiny babies is better!!!

    Thanks in advance

    Okay well had the doctors visit,

    He has a referal to a peadiatric surgeon as my doctor believes he does need to get done to stop the infections but would prefer we use this surgeon as he will be totally anethetised and wont feel a thing...

    So on the upside after reading all the horror stories on the net, this sounds like a very humaine way to do things, He said whilst he could be taken to someone who only does circumcision, thats okay but apparently its hard to get done for anything other than medical (our case) or religious reasons apparently "just to be like dad" isnt enough now days and that at least with a pead. surgeon it will be as painfree and infection free as possible.....

    so off to the surgeon... Lots of money, thank goodness for PHI. LOL.

    thanks everyone for all the info, it was great and certainly put my mind at ease, That and its not the worst thing in the world to have done.

    Thanks so much
