According to the mother, doctors have recommended this procedure to keep infection at bay, though her ex-husband has termed it an "unnecessary amputation." Unfortunately, no published U.S opinions are available for reference. Routine neonatal circumcision is no longer recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
