Your young boy’s rite of passage need not come at the expense of their health. When you decide to have your son circumcised, one of the most important considerations you need to make is to find the most skilled professional who can perform the operation. What happens when you failed to do so?
The Department of Health strongly recommends parents to avoid bringing their boys to unskilled persons that use the “pukpok” method or the traditional way of circumcising with the use of crude tools. Healthcare professionals say that this old method only poses high risk of infection, which could affect your child’s health.
“Letting unskilled persons handle your child’s circumcision could be detrimental to their health because the tools they use are oftentimes unsanitary. For worst cases, they ma acquire tetanus,” said Carmie de Leon, vice president for sales and marketing of Healthway Medical.
Tetanus is a deadly illness that can be fatal in up to 30 percent of cases. It is produced by bacteria that grows in the absence of oxygen like in dirty wounds or skin if cut with a-sterile instrument.
According to De Leon, parents who value their son’s health need to seek the advice of health professionals, more particularly those who are skilled enough to perform the circumcision to their child, to keep them safe from harm.
De Leon said, “Most parents worry about the expenses when going to a licensed professional. However, they do not realize the added costs that come with people who perform traditional circumcision. The cost might even be your child’s life.”
