  • OMG google it, seriously. You have a son and you weren't asked at the hospital?

  • I would google it as well. There's a lot to it. It's basically when the doctor removes some excess tissue from your son's penis. It's done for different reasons. You need to discuss it with the doctor.

  • It's the removal of the foreskin on the penis, they usually strap the baby down , not sure if the numb the area or not, clean it and snip off the excess skin....then they apply a guaze dressing and will instruct you on the aftercare at home for diaper changing.....its really not a necessary surgery just makes the penis easier to keep clean but teaching good hygeine will keep it clean later in life.
    I hope I answered your question ...just going from memory of my time in nursing school in the newborn nursery......

  • It is the surgical (and unnecessary, IMO) removal of the foreskin.
