Circumcision Pricing for Baby and Newborns
The price for baby and newborn circumcision under 2 months of age is $485.
The age is based upon your son’s actual date of birth.
Occasionally we get inquiries regarding premature babies; due to physiological and anatomical nuances we need to prepare for we must go by the day your son was born and not his estimated due date.
Circumcision Pricing for Older Boys and Teens
For infants 2 months of age and older, and on up to adults, the fee increases proportionally with the patient’s age.
If this applies to you or your son, please call our office for more information.
You can also find more detail on circumcision for boys and teens on the dedicated page on this site.

For infants we recommend feeding your son before coming in for the procedure, and bringing along extra diapers.
The preparations will be reviewed with you in detail, and you can ready more about the steps before your boy’s circumcision on the Infant Circumcision page.
What circumcision method is used at your clinic?
We use the Pollock Technique™, proven effective in over 50,000 procedures.
The Shang Ring technique is also employed in older clients when our doctors judge that method can offer the best outcome.
We use these techniques because they provide a quick and virtually painless experience and have world leading positive outcomes.
We are offering circumcision for all ages using the same safe techniques.
For children, adolescent and adult circumcision please contact us today.
What are the benefits and costs of circumcision?
Circumcision has been the topic of debate for many decades. Research and scientific studies indicate that there are a number of medical benefits that result from this procedure.
Circumcision benefits include:
- Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was reduced by 53% to 60%.
- Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) was reduced by 28% to 34%.
- Human papillomavirus (HPV) was reduced by 32% to 35%.
- Among female partners of circumcised men, bacterial vaginosis was reduced by 40% and Trichomonas vaginalis infection was reduced by 48%. As many of these studies were done in developing countries, it is possible that the protective effects of circumcision may be lower in the UK.
Additional health benefits of circumcision include the following:
- Lower risk of getting cancer of the penis, a rare type of cancer.
- Lower risk of urinary tract infections during the first year of life. Urinary tract infections during the first year of life can be serious and may lead to hospitalization. An uncircumcised baby boy has a 1 in 100 chance of getting a urinary tract infection during the first year of life, compared with a 1 in 1000 chance for a circumcised baby boy.
- Prevention of foreskin infections.
- Prevention of phimosis, a painful condition in which the foreskin retracts. Circumcised males do not get this condition.
- Easier genital hygiene.
- Studies now show that circumcision may also significantly reduce Prostate Cancer
Because studies have indicated a link between circumcisions and improved health and lower incidence of serious, sometimes deadly diseases, demand for infant circumcision has increased.
