Circumcision Video

"As a nurse I've seen dozens of circ's and there is very little variation from child to child. The video is the reality of the procedure."- Joy

About This Video: In this 2-minute excerpt, you will see two separate circumcisions. The first is the beginning of a Plastibell circumcision and shows the very beginning -(and then the very end, where you see the baby being picked up)- of what happens in every hospital circumcision. The second is a Gomco Clamp circumcision and starts basically where the first video left off, but after the clamp has been assembled and put on the baby's penis. What you see is the tightening of the Gomco Clamp. The actual circular cut is not shown, but what immediately follows, when the clamp is left on to assure that the blood has sufficiently clotted; then finally you will see the wrapping of the penis with gauze, before the baby is rediapered.

Please see the General Circumcision Description for details of the procedure. (I have removed it from this page to allow for faster loading.)
