The cost of circumcisions is forcing many parents to head to their home countries for such surgeries.
Dr Osama Al Harastani, specialist urologist at the Universal Hospital in Abu Dhabi, said: “The problem is not in the circumcision, but the errors happen when the baby is not investigated properly.”
In some cases if the baby has congenital anaemia or haemophilia and circumcision is done on him, it may pose dangers to the baby’s life, he said.
Cost of circumcision in different hospitals in Abu Dhabi:
Burjeel: Dh2,500 to Dh4,000
Ahlia: Local anaesthesia Dh1,750 and general anaesthesia Dh3,500
Medeor: Below two years Dh1,500, and above Dh2,500
NMC: Below six months Dh1,400, and above Dh2,400
Universal: Up to one year Dh1,000, and above one year Dh1,500
