Circumcisions in Lawrence, KS

Commonly performed on males of all ages throughout the United States, circumcision is a procedure that removes the foreskin of the penis, the tissues that cover the glans. This treatment is safe enough to be performed on babies as young as two days old, as well as adult men. Many parents may agonize over whether or not to circumcise their child. Our team at Lawrence Family Practice Center helps expecting parents, new parents, and adult patients make the right decision for their child or themselves. While the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) does not recommend explicitly for or against the procedure, the benefits outweigh the risks. Contact our Lawrence, KS family medicine practice to learn more about circumcision.


Circumcisions are performed throughout the world for cultural, religious, and medical reasons with the highest degree of circumcisions occurring in the United States and the Middle East. In fact, roughly 60% of male babies in the country are circumcised. While this procedure is most common for newborn babies, kids, and teens, adult men can get circumcised without much risk. In fact, the healing period following circumcision is the same regardless of the patient's age. Many parents decide to circumcise their male kids because removing the foreskin reduces the likelihood of contracting infections (such as STIs and UTIs), as well as penile cancer.
