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.
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
10% to 90%: There is huge variation in the percentage of baby boys that get circumcised. It depends on the ethnic group or the religious group that the family belongs to. Overall, in america, my estimate is that 2/3 of the baby boys get circumcised.
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
USA 70-80%: Great britain 20%, scandinavia 1-2%, israel and islamic countries 99 - 100%.
