Thank you to Dr. Ryan McAllister, who is on the research faculty at Georgetown University in biophysics, and a member of Your Whole Baby’s Board of Directors, for making his presentation, “An Elephant in the Hospital,” available for use in presentations.
"An Elephant in the Hospital," was recorded by Dr. McAllister at Georgetown University.
What is infant circumcision? Why is the practice common in U.S. hospitals and not in other countries? What does it remove and how does that affect the child? Does scientific data suggest that circumcision has benefits? What are the potential complications? How does it affect sexuality? Is it a medical procedure or a social surgery? If it's unnecessary surgery, what about contemporary bioethics principles? Through both a review of scientific literature and a discussion of the human cost of the procedure, this presentation explores these questions from the perspectives of the child, the adult survivor, the parent, and the practitioner.
