The optimal time to perform a circumcision is when the child is from age 4 weeks to 3 months. When parents book for the procedure, we will provide topical anaesthestic cream, which is to be applied 2 hours prior to the procedure.

Dr Wong is experienced with both newborn circumcision using plastic device, as well as without plastic device. He will assess the child, taking parents' wishes into consideration, determine the most appropriate technique, according to the anatomy and needs of the newborn. After the procedure, we will provide you with an after hours contact number if you have any problems.
