Or For Any Questions
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 our doctors’ 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 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 over their lifetime.
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.
Circumcision reduces the risk of getting some sexually transmitted diseases including Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and AIDS (HIV).
Circumcision reduces the risk of penile cancer and cervical cancer in partners.
Circumcised men have less risk of sexual dysfunction later in life.
Parents may choose not to circumcise due the possibility of it causing pain or other complications.
Parents may be concerned that when the child is older, he may resent the parents’ decision to have him circumcised.
Parents may not be aware of the medical benefits.
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.
Please reach out to us with your questions and we will be glad to speak with you.
Clinic phones are generally answered during opening hours.
Circumcision is a simple procedure in which the foreskin that sheathes the head of the penis is removed. Since foreskin traps bacteria and other infectious agents, its removal may improve genital hygiene and reduce risk of disease over the lifetime of the boy and his future sexual partners.
In 2012, the American Academy of Paediatrics issued a statement that the health benefits of circumcision outweighed the risks. Thus, circumcision for your son is a personal decision that you must make with your partner after weighing the benefits and risks and often involves religious or cultural preferences as well.
Circumcision has been the topic of debate for many decades. In the past, procedures were deemed unnecessary and stressful by some, but times have changed. Due to medical advancements, Doctors can now conduct virtually pain free circumcision procedures which are quick, painless, effective and successful and the benefits of circumcision are more widely understood.
There are now many significant studies and associated evidence linking circumcision to improved health and lower incidences of serious and deadly diseases. The evidence of the benefits of circumcision, coupled with medical advancements and improved circumcision techniques has resulted in increased public awareness, acceptance and a vast increase in the demand for infant circumcision.
The medical team at the Gentle Procedures Clinic only use the renowned Pollock Technique™, which is very quick and virtually pain free and is associated with low complication rates. Our doctors and staff are all educated and trained in the procedure and benefits of circumcision, and are dedicated to making your experience with us as pleasant as possible.
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.
There are different circumcision techniques in practice today, 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.
At Gentle Procedures West GTA circumcision clinic we only use the Pollock Technique™ because we believe it is a safe and comfortable method for male circumcision.
The method we use minimizes pain for the patient via application of multiple modalities to reduce it, including:
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.
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. Almost all 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.
