Experienced Circumcision Doctor – Dr. Roland Sing

Dr. Roland Sing is a well known and respected Urologic surgeon with a private practice and hospital affiliations in the GTA. He is also appointed as an Assistant Clinical Professor at McMaster University. He has a special interest in efficient and safe outpatient surgery which he practices at the Toronto Gentle Procedures Clinic.

Dr. Sing has chosen to focus his clinic on only two surgical procedures and Pollock Technique™ circumcision is one of these procedures. After extensive research on circumcision methods in use today in Canada and around the world, Dr. Sing chose to have extensive training with Dr. Neil Pollock, one of North America’s foremost authorities on baby and child circumcision.

Dr. Pollock’s research into developing a safe, quick and virtually pain free approach to circumcision has been widely recognized in North America. Dr. Sing is proud to bring Dr. Pollock’s techniques to Toronto, and his clinic has grown enormously as a result. Parents are relieved to have a virtually pain-free option for the circumcision of their baby boys – and older boys and adult men are benefit equally from Pollock Technique™ circumcision.

Why Gentle Procedures Toronto for Adult Circumcision?

Adult circumcision is undertaken by our clients for a variety of reasons. Some men get themselves circumcised at an adult age for personal or cosmetic reasons. Other seek relief from an overly tight foreskin (including phimosis) or other conditions that can be ameliorated via an adult circumcision procedure.

Whatever the reason a mature man seeks to get circumcised (at any age), we are pleased to offer adult circumcision care at Gentle Procedures Toronto. Our circumcision doctor performs adult circumcision on a daily basis and our proven Pollock Technique™ is know to deliver the desired cosmetic results with the minimum of discomfort. Importantly – a general anaesthetic is not required – and this significantly reduces the risk and complexity of the procedure. With the use of multiple local anesthetic only we eliminate the need for a hospital setting and are able to perform the circumcision procedure for adult age males in our circumcision clinic on an in-office-procedure basis.

Getting Circumcised as an Adult

Circumcision Considerations and Research

Each year, there are over a million circumcisions performed in North America. Newborn circumcision, when performed properly, is quick and safe. The medical benefits accrue from infancy through old age.

It is Dr. Sing’s position (as well as the position of the Canadian Pediatric society) is that; “When parents are making a decision about circumcision they should be advised of the present state of medical knowledge about its benefits and harms. Their decision may ultimately be based on personal, religious or cultural factors”.

In 2012, The American Academy of Pediatrics published in a Policy Statement that; “current evidence indicates that the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks”. For more information on the risks and benefits of circumcision, please visit our Media page to find links to original policy statements and studies – including a 2016 paper published in the Canadian Journal of Urology which concludes that the benefits of circumcision may have been previously understated. The authors (including Dr. Neil Pollock) find that circumcision affords important benefits to men.

Why do so many doctors recommend the Gentle Procedures Clinic for circumcision?

Toronto family doctors refer patients to our clinic for circumcision because that is our expertise.

Dr. Sing uses the Pollock Technique™, a quick and virtually painless procedure pioneered by Dr. Neil Pollock and safely performed on over 50,000 infants. For a video demonstration of Dr. Pollock’s circumcision technique, click here.

Our procedure takes only a minute (10 times quicker than most hospital circumcisions). We use extensive pain control methods including Tylenol, a sugar solution (to reduce pain perception), a topical freezing cream, and a local anesthetic injection (both short- and long-acting).

There are extremely low complication rates.

For your peace of mind, Dr. Sing is available 24 hours a day on his personal cell phone. All families are given his contact information if any concerns should arise so they can reach the doctor directly at any hour.

We do not charge any hospital administration fees at our private clinic.

Why do Toronto parents choose to circumcise their sons?

An infant circumcision is often undertaken for cultural and religious reasons, and there can be health benefits as well.

Our Muslim clients circumcise their babies in accordance with their traditions, and many other families simply choose to carry on a family tradition, or seek the health benefits that may come from male circumcision:

It reduces the risk of urinary tract infection.

It reduces the risk of penile infection also called balanoposthitis.

It eliminates the need for circumcision later in life when up to 6% of boys will require a circumcision because of various problems.

It reduces the risk of getting some sexually transmitted diseases including Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and AIDS (HIV).

It reduces the risk of penile cancer and cervical cancer in partners.

Circumcised men have less risk of sexual dysfunction later in life.

Why do some Toronto parents choose not to circumcise their sons?

They may be concerned that they could be doing a procedure on an otherwise healthy baby that may cause pain or complications.

They wonder whether their child will wish that he had not been circumcised at a later time.

Some parents can be less interested in following cultural and religious traditions.

They are unsure of the medical reasons in favor of a circumcision.

Circumcision Clinic FAQ – What is circumcision?

Circumcision is a simple operation that involves removal of the foreskin that sheaths the head of the penis. There are a number of very different methods used today for circumcision and the application of anesthesia.

The Pollock Technique™ for infant circumcision allows for a virtually painless and bloodless procedure to be safely performed in one minute. This technique was developed by Dr. Pollock and is used by Dr. Sing at Gentle Procedures Toronto. The Pollock Technique™ is not used by all circumcision doctors in Toronto despite its’ benefits because it is relatively new and requires training with Dr. Pollock at his clinics in Vancouver.

Key Questions About Infant Male Circumcision

Why Circumcision?

Parents sometimes ask about why circumcision should be done, and what type of circumcision is best. On these questions we can answer that the decision on why to circumcise is a personal one that will be made within your family based on your traditions and values.

There are some potential health benefits to male infant circumcision and there are also some reasons not to circumcise baby boys.

Our recommendation is that you make an informed a decision as possible, and the answer to the question of why to circumcise that you come to will be unique to you and your family.

Circumcision is part of both Judaism and Islam, and many Christians and people of other religious backgrounds also choose circumcision for health and cosmetic reasons, or to continue family tradition.

Many Canadian men are circumcised, as infant circumcision was routinely done on a majority of male babies in the 1970’s for health reasons. Data from www.circinfo.net

Types of Circumcision

There are different circumcision techniques practiced by different doctors but the main “circumcision types” are simply circumcised and uncircumcised. We are occasionally asked about a “tight circumcision” or a “low circumcision”, but our method is designed to give the same result in all cases and we do not offer a choice of different circumcision types – and we apply our method in all cases except where a patient may present with a unique situation requiring a unique approach.

While all circumcision methods generally seek a similar result – some are better than others at achieving a consistent outcome with minimal pain and risk of complications. At Gentle Procedures Toronto circumcision clinic we only use the Pollock Technique™ because we believe it is the safest and most comfortable method for male circumcision available today. The method we use minimizes pain for the patient via application of multiple modalities to reduce it, including:

  • Tylenol before the procedure
  • Numbing cream applied before the anaesthetic injection
  • A dorsal penile block (a freezing injection) that removes all feeling from the penis
  • A sugar pacifier to keep the baby distracted (not used in adult circumcisions)

All these steps are fully covered by our simple fixed fees.

Additionally, our doctor also controls environmental factors in the procedure room to maximize the patient’s comfort. We maintain the temperature at a warm and comfortable level and may play music to help provide a calm ambiance during the brief operation.

Why a Toronto Circumcision Doctor

It is possible to get baby boys circumcised in a non-medical setting for religious reasons.

We strongly recommend that even in this case the circumcision be performed only by trained, experienced, and licensed medical doctors.

Many ritual circumcision practitioners meet this criteria, and some may not.

If you are considering a circumcision done by someone who may not be a licensed doctor, we recommend a careful evaluation of their credentials.
