|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Neonatal Circumcision||Device: Gomco Circumcision Clamp Device: Mogen Circumcision Clamp||Not Applicable|
Objective: To compare pain levels assessed by salivary cortisol and standardized neonatal pain scale among the two most common infant circumcision techniques in uncomplicated pregnancies after a thorough resident-wide education curriculum under attending physician supervision.
The secondary objectives are to assess the operative time, complication rates such as infection and bleeding and short term outcomes including need for re-circumcision among treatment groups.
Hypothesis: The Mogen technique of circumcision is less painful, faster, and associated with less bleeding for newborns when compared to the Gomco technique after a resident circumcision standard teaching curriculum.

Active Comparator: Gomco Circumcision Clamp
Gomco circumcision clamp used for neonatal circumcision.
Device: Gomco Circumcision Clamp
Active Comparator: Mogen Circumcision Clamp
Mogen circumcision clamp used for neonatal circumcision.
Device: Mogen Circumcision Clamp
- Neonatal pain [ Time Frame: Approximately 2 hours before and 15 minutes after the procedure ]Neonatal pain will be assessed by change in salivary cortisol level pre and post procedure
- Bleeding [ Time Frame: Approximately 10 minutes after the procedure ]Bleeding is measured by weight of blood soaked gauzes after the procedure
- Procedural Time [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of procedure, average 4 minutes ]Time needed to complete the circumcision:start time from local anesthesia to end of circumcision.
- Parental satisfaction [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 weeks after the procedure ]Approximately 6 weeks after the procedure parental satisfaction will be assessed by a phone survey.
- Need for circumcision revision [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 weeks after the circumcision ]Approximately 6 weeks after the procedure the pediatrician's office will be contacted to see if a circumcision revision was needed.
- Postoperative infection [ Time Frame: Approximately 6 weeks after circumcision ]Approximately 6 weeks after the circumcision the pediatrician's office will be contacted regarding surgical site infection.
- Neonatal pain score [ Time Frame: Assesed from time of recruitment to end of procedure, approximately 1 day. ]Standardized score including vital signs and facial expression
