Circumcisions and Frenulotomy

In our office, circumcisions are done using a local anesthetic, and frenulotomy with a potent topical anesthetic, along with soothing measures for the baby, such as oral sucrose solution, which is very effective to distract and pacify the infant during the procedure. Dr. Bjork also performs circumcisions in the hospital, and in exceptional cases, in the home.

During a circumcision or frenulotomy procedure, parents have the option to be present in the room to observe the procedure or just to be with the baby in the same room, or may opt to wait in another room until the procedure is done. We strive to accommodate the wishes of the parents during office visits like this!
