Safe Newborn Circumcision
under 2 months.

Dr. Buencamino is experienced & performed over 1000 circumcisions over the last 11 years.

The younger is the baby, the more painless for the baby.

Congratulations on the arrival of your baby! If you're considering circumcision, we understand you might have some questions or concerns about the procedure.

 

We know that circumcision is a personal decision that requires careful consideration. At Thrive Kids Clinic, we are committed to providing you with the information and support you need to make an informed decision that's right for you and your baby. Dr. Buencamino is dedicated to ensuring the safety, comfort, and well-being of your newborn during the procedure. We will take all the necessary steps to ensure a successful outcome and offer you the reassurance and peace of mind you need.

It's essential to stay calm for your baby's sake (we have a specially made room with a window to watch!). Warm room and soothing music.

 

Circumcision is a straightforward and ancient practice, performed for over 4000 years. The actual surgical part takes just about 5 minutes, and with proper preparation, babies handle it well. 

You need to spare up to 1.5 hours in the office. Most of time will cover registration, consultation, preparing baby,  waiting for local anesthesia to work as well as dressing and clothing baby and getting him in his seat. 

When you contact our office, we will provide you with an appointment and instructions on how to prepare your baby.  Call us! 416-849-2260
