The Perth Circumcision Clinic was set up by Dr Leon Levitt, an experienced Western Australian General Practitioner Obstetrician with over 30 years experience in circumcisions in neonates (boys under the age of 8 weeks). He has performed over 10000 circumcisions in the clinic setting. The Clinic has been operating within Dr Levitt’s medical practice throughout this time, and in 2011 began operations as a separate entity.
Wilst Dr Levitt is unable to perform circumsicion for children over the age of 8 weeks, he is able to provide valuable information and a referral for the procedure to be done with a Specialist.
An experienced Neonatal Paediatrician Dr Steven Resnick, joined the Perth Circumcision Clinic in 2011 in order to provide a constant circumcision service to Western Australian families. He uses exactly the same technique and protocols developed by Dr Levitt.
Over twenty five years of experience in performing circumcisions. Over 9,000 circumcisions. Dr Levitt has over twenty five years experience as a GP Obstetrician.
Dr Resnick has over fifteen years experience as a neonatal Paediatrician and is now Head of Neonatology at King Edward Memorial Hospital. There is no greater collective experience available for your child’ procedure.
Dr Levitt has a national reputation for circumcisions, having been flown to Sydney, Melbourne and overseas to perform neonatal circumcisions. He has more experience in this procedure than almost any other doctor in Australia.

Trust & Safety
Our Doctors and Child Health Nurses care for your child at the Perth Circumcision Clinic with great experience and professional excellence, allowing parents to have confidence that their child is in the safest of hands. There are several minor variations in technique already in use in Perth and all are valid. The truly important factor is the experience of the practitioner not the technique. Trust for parents comes from experience and expertise.
Our doctors have great experience and technical excellence in dealing with the many different appearances of the foreskin and penis. Each of our doctors specialise in medical attention to neonates and infants.
Parents have the choice of multiple approaches to reducing pain for the child. No doctor or technique can truly claim to be completely pain free, but at Perth Circumcision Clinic we can deliver the closest to a pain free procedure for your child, just as you wish.
