Circumcisions: Usually circumcisions take place in the hospital after delivery. If the baby is already home then the circumcision ail be done by a urologist. The weight of the baby versus ability to circumcise is up to the doctor, but there are no standard indications to prohibit a 10 pound baby from getting circumcised
