Newborn Circumcision - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin from the penis of your male baby. It is usually done within the first few days of birth. At birth, the penis has a protective sleeve of tissue called the foreskin covering the glans or head. The foreskin can usually be pulled back to expose the glans of the penis by puberty. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the potential health benefits of circumcision include, easier cleaning of the penis, decreased risk of getting HIV, sexually transmitted infections, urinary tract infections and certain cancers, and prevention of foreskin problems such as complications from the inability to pull it back over the tip of the penis. Other common reasons for circumcision are religious, social, and cultural beliefs. Before the procedure, the area will be cleaned, the caregiver will apply medicine, either as an injection or as a numbing cream. During the procedure, a small slit will be made in the foreskin. And it will be loosened from the head. The caregiver will place a device over the glans. This device will protect the penis allowing the foreskin to be safely removed. If a plastic device is used, the caregiver will tie the foreskin to the ring, then the foreskin will be trimmed. The ring will be left in place and will fall off in five to seven days leaving a healed circumcision. If a metal bell device is used, the foreskin will be trimmed around the base of the bell. The bell will be removed at the end of the procedure. After the procedure, it is normal for the glans to be sensitive, appear raw, and have a little yellowish discharge. If a bandage is used, change it with the diaper. Use petroleum jelly or antibiotic ointment to keep the bandage from sticking to the wound. It's safe to wash the penis gently with water as it heals. The circumcision should completely heal within 10 to 14 days. To find out more about circumcision, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
