The Children’s Health Clinic provides circumcision appointments within 30 days from the newborn’s due date. A referral is not needed for an appointment to be scheduled. This procedure is not covered under Alberta Health and is paid privately.
Please contact our booking line at 403-955-1077 ext. 2 to book your appointment or to find out more.
Bring the following items to your appointment:
- Infant’s Tylenol drops
- Polysporin ointment
- Extra diapers and clothing
- Formula (if not breastfeeding)
We recommend that you feed the infant before coming to your appointment. Please arrange childcare for your other children.
We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your appointment for check-in. You will be given a Patient Demographic Form and circumcision consent to complete. You will also be provided with information regarding the procedure and the infant will be weighed and measured.
The method used in our clinic is the Mogen Technique. The procedure will take 20 minutes, but you will be asked to stay in the clinic for 40-60 minutes for observation.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the circumcision procedure and the healing process, please contact our nurse at 403-955-1077 ext. 3 so that your concerns may be addressed.
