Radical ????: Your question yields your bias. Circumcision in infancy is simple, well tolerated under a local anesthetic & heals in less than a week with few if any complications. Urinary tract infections in male infants are almost limited to (95%) uncircumcised males. Rates around the world range from 10% britain, 30% australia & france , >80% us. They reflect parent choice.
