Is it true that if the infant is over ten pounds the they can not do an in office procedure for a circumcision.

PlastiBell device: In my opinion safest method because string used over groove in plastibell has compressed blood vessels to foreskin so they don't bleed. Correct size must be used.

This is just my opinion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
