About the Center for Circumcision

At the Center for Circumcision, we’ve dedicated ourselves to ensuring that every individual seeking an adult circumcision procedure finds a safe, affordable, and compassionate environment.

Our Philosophy

We understand undergoing procedures like circumcision can be somewhat stressful – no matter how old you are. As an adult, it’s even more difficult to find a dependable doctor that fits within your budget. After we saw the need in our local communities, we made it our mission to help.

And we know how the decision to get circumcised can feel isolating at times. That’s why we take care to be available to support our clients before and after the procedure to speak to any concerns that come up. We also maintain and respect your privacy at all times.


Rabbi Phil Karesh is the owner and President of the Center for Circumcision. Starting in 2011, Rabbi Karesh saw a demand for adult circumcision and built a business to meet the needs of the patients – all with exceptional Board Certified Urologists and with a cost effective approach. With an aspiration for excellence in circumcision and exceptional customer care, his company has been serving the needs of patients – infants and adults alike – since 2011.

Rabbi Karesh completed a Bachelors in Biology from Yeshiva University in New York, a Masters in Education from Loyola University Chicago, Rabbinic Ordination from Yeshiva University in Israel and an extensive training program for neonatal circumcision. Rabbi Karesh is a prominent Mohel – the Hebrew name for the one who performs ritual circumcision – throughout the Chicagoland community. He has performed thousands of procedures since the start of his company.

In addition to performing circumcisions, Rabbi Karesh is involved in communal work on the professional level in Jewish education, both formal and informal. He speaks on Jewish law, Jewish thought, marriage, and parenting. Rabbi Karesh, along with his wife and children, live in Chicago.
