The debate about whether to circumcise infants in the neonatal period likely will continue. As the medical and ethical issues are discussed and studied, however, economic factors are beginning to limit the practice in the United States. As the shift in reimbursement occurs, parents who believe that circumcision is a medically necessary practice will need to be reassured that their child may lead a healthy life with an intact foreskin.
