New York State Nurses Association file a complaint against New York City regarding its male circumcision methods
Due to increasing concerns about the risks associated unproven techniques and practices like infant penile rotavirus infections, newborn male circumcisions are becoming more common. Additional benefits include the protection of the baby against other sexually transmitted diseases, the prevention of the development of genital warfarets in adulthood, and the ability to heal pre-existing genitalwarts. A skilled, competent provider can help reduce the risks of newborn male circumcision.
Canada’s majority of newborn male circumcisions are performed by licensed medical professionals. Many of these procedures are also performed by traditional healers. This new policy started in March of 2021, following a series of Globe investigation of provincial health departments. Globe’s investigation revealed that many newborn male circumcision doctors were not properly trained or had received inadequate training. These findings led to the new policy and guidelines.
Circumcision is recommended for infants up to the age of four months. A special ring is used to circumcise the glans penis. The surgeon then makes a small incision in the scrotum. This small opening is then used by the surgeon to remove the foreskin from the corona using retractable hemostats. A retractable ring is then placed on the hole and stitches are made using an operating thread.
Newborn male circumcision is a safe procedure that has many benefits. One reason is the fact that most African countries require male infants to be circumcised before they can receive any other medical treatment or immunizations. Scientific evidence has shown that infants who are born to males will be more likely to get immunizations and medical care early in their lives. Medical studies have shown that genital warts spread very easily through intercourse. It is much less likely that genital warts will be transmitted to a partner if the procedure is performed early in the child’s life.
Newborn circumcision has many medical benefits for parents. In intact males, circulating vaccines like Diphtheria/Tetanus can be prevented more easily. If the male is healthy, the woman can breastfeed him. A woman can breastfeed her newborn son if he has undergone circumcision. The woman won’t need to get immunizations for Diphtheria or Tetanus through her baby’s birth hospitalization.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recently released policy information regarding newborn male circumcision. The academy has reversed its earlier views on infant circumcision due to a lack in medical evidence and protection against complications. The new policy advises doctors to let the newborn know about the benefits and risks of circumcision as part of a routine pediatric visit. The academy recommends that doctors explain to the mother and the infant the risks and benefits of the procedure. He should also let the mother know that she can breastfeed her child if he has received the necessary immunizations.
The new policy encourages doctors and nurses to identify potential risks associated with newborn circumcision rates. There are currently two methods to evaluate newborn mortality rates and rate per birth. According to the new policy the accuracy of these two measurements should not be lower than the average rate of circumcision per birth. The academy recommends that every newborn be tested for any diseases, including SIDS, at the time of birth. This will enable researchers to create accurate safety measures.
New recommendations from pediatricians encourage parents to opt for infant male newborn circumcision. Doctors have been deferring to parents’ decisions regarding this issue for many years. Numerous researchers now believe that newborn male circumcision has medical benefits beyond pain relief and infection prevention. The consensus is that male newborn circumcision has more risks than it offers. But doctors must inform patients and families about the risks and advantages of infant male circumcision. If doctors fail to comply with this policy, the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) will file a complaint at the Department of Health.
