Depends on setting: When I do an office circumcision on a young infant boy, i give the parents the option of being in the procedure room -- some want to, others don't. When we do a circumcision on an older boy in the operating room, we don't allow the parents in there. You should ask this question of your pediatrician or obstetrician or whoever would be the usual physician to circumcise your son.
