In Australia most newborn boys were once circumcised routinely. It then decreased precipitously in the 1970s-80s, but is now rising again, in line with research. Currently 66% of Australian-born and 91% of US-born white men are circumcised. The advantages of circumcision include:
• a 3-fold reduction in the risk of inflammation and infection of the foreskin
• a 10-fold reduction in UTIs
• a 5-fold reduction in the risk of the man’s female partner being infected by chlamydia or getting cervical cancer
Dr Foote has been performing circumcision in his rooms for over 15 years, and uses local anaesthetic with the assistance of a registered nurse. The procedure is virtually painless and usually is completed in less than 30 minutes.
