what percentage of boys get circumcised as babies?

Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Variable: It depends on where you live. In the United States most boys are circumcised. In my practice more than 80% are. Certain religions mandate circumcisions. Certain cultures encourage being uncircumcised.
