By The Leading private provider of circumcision for boys
Religious circumcision is most common among Muslim, Christian and Jewish communities and usually occurs shortly after birth, during childhood or around puberty depending on your faith.
Circumcision is one of the most common medical procedures in the world, with 25 circumcisions performed every minute. It is also one of the oldest and one of the simplest.
It is defined simply as the surgical removal of a fold of skin (the `foreskin’ or `prepuce’) that covers the head (glans) of the un-erect penis.
