James L. Snyder, M.D., F.A.C.S., Past President of the Virginia Urological Society discusses the controversy around infant circumcision. Conversation recorded in San Francisco, California July 29, 2010.
We have a perfectly designed genital structure, the foreskin, and cutting it off is to me a major violation of boys' human rights... I found out that 3/4 of the nerve endings were missing, and this was only recently discovered. Only one study has been done comparing about 160 men in two groups, circumcised and intact, and found that the most sensitive part of the penis is the foreskin... by miles.
