Welcome to the Gentle Procedures Clinic. On this site you will find information about circumcision for baby boys. Our goal is to make it simple for you to get the info and services you may require.

Infant circumcision is commonly done relatively early in the life of your son. Procedures completed in the first four weeks are considered newborn circumcisions.

We offer circumcision for newborns up to 6 months and boys 12 years and over. We also serve teens and men of any age who are seeking the procedure.

If you have made the decision to have your son circumcised it is recommended to schedule the procedure as soon as possible in his young and new life.

You can contact Gentle Procedures Clinic to confirm our next available appointment in Dallas at our Richardson clinic at 469-931-0684. We work hard to deliver quality care in a timely fashion.

The Scheduling Fee at the time of making the appointment is $100. Prices for Circumcisions are calculated by the age the baby will be at the time of the procedure, not the age the baby is at the time of the making of the appointment. The cost of the Scheduling Fee will roll into the total cost of the circumcision.

The price for infant circumcision starts at $480 for infants. The pricing changes depending on the age of your son.

Please call us at 469-931-0684 so we can provide pricing for the age of your child.

The Gentle Procedures Clinics Experience

The focused practice of the clinic permits us to optimize the circumcision procedure as well as the overall experience.

We have developed specialized systems and processes to offer these services. We are baby circumcision experts.

The Best Care for Your Baby Boy

You will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare your son for the brief circumcision operation. This includes how to best time feeding before surgery to maximize your baby’s comfort. Babies may take Tylenol before and after surgery but please check with your doctor regarding dosage. During the procedure they are given a sugary pacifier to distract and entertain them. Some babies even sleep through the whole thing.

Circumcised Baby Follow Up

Guidance and follow-up continues afterwards, with written and verbal instructions on how to provide care after the circumcision. The goal is to minimize your child’s discomfort and promote healing. You will be shown how to minimize the risk of infection and informed of warning signs to watch for in case of any complications. Our doctor is available by phone after surgery and will respond quickly to any questions or concerns.

Baby Circumcision Frequently Asked Questions

The best time is between 7-28 days of age, however, baby circumcisions are done at Gentle Procedures Dallas until the age of 5 months. Since newborn babies are less aware, recover faster, and the risk of complications is lower, families should try their best to have circumcision done as close to this time period as possible. However, it is common for a variety of reasons that circumcision will be done at a later time.
Published research shows that our pain control process is highly effective. Many babies can sleep right through the entire short procedure. Most babies experience little or no pain at all.
It is not unusual for a baby to sleep 6-8 hours after the procedure and to miss a feeding. Some babies will be irritable for a number of minutes to hours afterwards. Behaviorally, most babies are back to themselves by the next day or two.
The gomco clamp is the most common technique used by physicians. It requires much longer to perform and involves much more tissue handling than our methods.

The plastibell technique is also used by some physicians performing circumcisions in Dallas. With this technique the baby must go home with a small plastic device tied on to his penis that allows the foreskin to desiccate over subsequent days. This is also a lengthier procedure to perform by the physician.

Our procedure takes only a few minutes. We use extensive pain control methods, sugar solution (which has been shown to reduce pain perceptions), soothing music, topical numbing cream, custom baby holders, and local anesthetic injection.

We have extremely low complication rates and no hospital administration fees are charged. Our clinic is designed to meet the needs of families for infant circumcision. Because of our focus on this procedures we are able to organize our procedures and clinic operations optimally for baby circumcision. This makes us different from almost all other circumcision providers in Texas.

Complications are rare. Occasionally, there can be bleeding from the circumcision many hours after the procedure. This is treated by putting some pressure with a gauze on the penis for 2-3 minutes to close the oozing blood vessel. (This will be demonstrated to you by our staff).

Very rarely, more serious bleeding can occur which may require a visit to the hospital. Infection is also a possible complication. It is extremely rare and can be associated with redness, pus, and a foul smell from the circumcision. It is treated by putting Polysporin five times a day on the penis which usually resolves any infection within one or two days.

Suboptimal cosmetic result is another possible but very infrequent complication.

Yes, they are possible; however, to date, there have never been any serious complications among our patients using this circumcision method.
Healing occurs in several stages, and most newborns show signs of healing by one week.
No. If you are booking for your son, it is a parental decision and we only require consent from both parents to proceed. You may schedule online or give us a call during business hours.
No – doctors have different beliefs and practices regarding anesthetic use. The technique we use is fast and gentle, so local anesthesia is all that’s required. It has been proven safe and effective on tens of thousands of patients over the last 25 years, and minimizes pain and discomfort with multiple combined anesthetic methods.

Potential Benefits of Infant Circumcision

Texas parents undertake a circumcision procedure for their son in order to fulfill cultural and religious traditions, as well as to seek improved health outcomes for their children. Some parents decide to circumcise their son for cosmetic and personal reasons. The important thing is to make an informed
decision that you will be happy with.

In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a statement that the health benefits of circumcision outweighed the risks. The Canadian Pediatrics Society acknowledges the potential benefits of circumcision but stops short of routine recommendation for newborns. Thus, circumcision for your son is a personal decision that you must make with your partner after weighing the benefits and risks and often involves religious or cultural preferences as well.

There are many potential benefits from baby circumcision:

Improved genital hygiene

It is well known that microorganisms accumulate under the foreskin which fosters inflammation which can lead to conditions such as balanitis/balanoposthitis (inflammation of the head of the penis). The incidence of balanitis is twice as high in those who are uncircumcised. Smegma, which is a cheesy like secretion, can also accumulate under the foreskin combining with bacteria to produce an offensive odor.

Reduced risk of urinary tract and bladder infections

Because microorganisms can accumulate under and adhere to the foreskin, bacteria has a greater chance of migrating up the urethra causing urinary tract infections (UTIs) especially in infancy. Studies suggest an over 10-fold decrease in risk of urinary tract infection in circumcised infants. UTIs are a
potentially painful and dangerous condition as it can result in kidney inflammation and scarring. Studies suggest that the protective effect of circumcision against UTIs when done as a newborn continues into adulthood.

Reduced risk of phimosis after circumcision

Phimosis is a condition where the foreskin becomes so tight that it cannot be pulled back fully, resulting in UTIs, local skin infection, pain when passing urine, retention of urine, kidney stones, and sexual dysfunction. Circumcision eliminates the risk of phimosis, which affects 1 in 10 older boys and men.

Reduced risk of penile cancer

Studies have shown an over 20-fold reduction in the risk of invasive penile cancer which is thought to arise from adherence of high-risk human papillomavirus to the foreskin and smegma causing chronic inflammation and recurrent infections resulting in phimosis. Invasive penile carcinoma is highly associated with a history of phimosis.

Reduced risk of prostate cancer

Uncircumcised men have a 1.6-2.0- fold higher incidence of prostate cancer, which is thought to correspond with a higher chance of sexually transmitted infections resulting in a chronic state of inflammation.

Reduced risk of HIV/AIDS

Circumcision reduced the risk of getting HIV/AIDS by 3-fold during sex with an infected woman. This is because the HIV virus enters through the inner lining of the foreskin which is thin and vulnerable. Ulceration and tearing are also more common in uncircumcised men, adding to the risk of HIV entry.

Reduced cervical cancer in women

Circumcision reduced cervical cancer risk of a man’s female partner by 5.6 times as there is less risk of adherence and colonization of human papillomavirus.

What are the Risks of Circumcision?

While the procedure performed at our Dallas clinic can be considered routine and low risk, there is always some degree of risk with any surgery. Potential problems include:

Bleeding after circumcision – In 1 in 500 circumcisions there may be some bleeding that is usually stopped with pressure or less commonly with stitches. If a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia is present, then our doctors will need advice from a pediatric hematologist prior to proceeding.

Infection – There is always a possibility that there could be a generalized infection requiring antibiotics after the surgery (1/4000). Serious infections are rare (1/5000).

Concealed penis – When there is a good amount of fat around the penis (pubic fat), the penis may retract inward and increase the chances the penis gets partially buried and requiring medical intervention (1/800).

Meatal stenosis – This is a narrowing of the urethra that may occur after the procedure requiring medical intervention (1/1000).

Phimosis from circumcision – This is a narrowing of the shaft skin opening over the head of the penis requiring medical intervention (1/500)

Suboptimal cosmetic result (1/500)

Trauma resulting in permanent damage to the head of the penis or more serious complications including death (extremely rare).
