Neonatologists see only newborns and thus only see the problems of the operation itself performed on infants. In fact such problems occur in only a minor proportion of baby boys, and generally because of poor technique by an inexperienced operator. However, urologists who see and have to treat the problems of uncircumcised males of all ages cannot understand why all newborns are not circumcised [310, 312]. Other health care workers in hospitals and aged care homes also have adverse comments concerning the uncircumcised penises they see and have to deal with, problems with catheters for urinary drainage, and the deranged reactions of elderly men with dementia when attempts are made to wash the genital area. The demand for circumcision later in childhood has increased, but, with age, there is an inevitable increase in worry to the boy or man in the lead-up to having this done, usually a more visible scar is left, and the cost can be 10-times as great. Such considerations, coupled with the advantages of early circumcision, led Schoen to state "Current evidence concerning the life-time medical benefit of newborn circumcision favours an affirmative choice" .
