I Need Information About a Pediatric Urologist at Children's Memorial Hospital.
My son is 9 months old. He had a circumcision shortly after birth, however he doesn't look circumcised. I was referred to Dr. Chaviano at Children's Memorial Hospital for a redo circumcision. Has anyone had any experience with Dr. Chaviano, or have seen his work? I am very concerned because I want my son to be seen by Dr. Close at University of Chicago's Comer Children's Hospital. My current insurance plan won't let me go to U of C.

My sons are not circumcised. 'Just wondering, do you want or need to do this again? It sounds like this situation is quite stressful for you.

My son is not circumcised. At nine months I would find it cruel to put him through such pain. It seems to be upsetting to you also. Medically it's not necessary, more a cosmetic issue.
Is it necessary?

We've seen Dr. Kaplan at Children's and he's fabulous.
