MEDICAL, HEALTH & SEXUAL
New brochures and key publications are on homepage.
Circumcision of males is a very popular procedure. The purpose of this website is to provide a balanced up-to-date evidence-based review of scientific studies on male circumcision that have been published mainly in reputable international medical and scientific journals after a formal, critical refereeing process by experts in the field.
The information reviewed herein is the most extensive and accurate in the world. Listed are over 1,000 references. Most can be found by the reader in any medical library or Internet referencing service, such as PubMed. The message they convey is quite clear and have helped in formulation of affirmative circumcision policy statements by major international and national organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the WHO, UNAIDS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Circumcision Academy Australia over recent years.
It is the intention of the present overview to provide easily-accessible, reliable, balanced information that should be of assistance to parents, medical professionals, scholars, as well as men and their sexual partners. The author is a professor ameritus in the medical faculty of the University of Sydney. He has over 46 years of scientific research experience and more than 380 research publications, including over 87 on circumcision, mostly in peer-reviewed international journals. As such he is often invited by journals, book publishers, professional organizations and the news media for his comments or other contributions.
