Dr. Neil Pollock
At Gentle Procedures Toronto circumcision clinic, we use the Pollock Technique™ for circumcision procedures for all ages of babies, boys, and adult men. The detail below focuses on infant circumcision, so please visit the adult circumcision page or the teen circumcision page if you would like more information on circumcision at an older age.
Our doctor, Dr. Roland Sing, has trained with the renowned Dr. Neil Pollock at his clinics in Vancouver, and has been certified in the use of this superior circumcision technique.
Extensive pain control methods are employed for infant circumcision; including Tylenol, sugar solution (which has been shown to reduce pain perception), soothing music, topical freezing cream, padded baby holders, and a long acting local anesthetic. Older boys and adult men also benefit from multiple local anesthetics to ensure a virtually painless procedure.
Please contact us today for more information, or to schedule a circumcision appointment, and please read on below for more detail.
Is Our Doctor’s Circumcision Method Like Plastibell?
The Pollock Technique™ can be used for babies, boys, and men of all ages, and consists of using a Mogen clamp under long-acting local anesthetic. This method is quite different from the Plastibell procedure in that it is faster and there is no device left attached to the penis after the surgery.
Our circumcision doctor performs Pollock Technique™ circumcisions for infants, babies, boys, teens, and adult men. The Pollock Technique™ circumcision operation takes only one minute for newborns – and this is 10 times quicker than most hospital circumcisions. This is different from the Plastibell circumcision procedure where an infant circumcision requires 10 minutes to affix the Plastibell device to the baby’s penis and it remains in place for up to 7 days.
We feel that Pollock Technique™ circumcision is the most effective procedure practiced in Canada today. Only local anesthetic is needed and recovery time is relatively fast. Our method is quicker than other procedures, and has proven safe over the past 25 years and 50,000 procedures. This is one of the reasons why so many Toronto doctors refer their patients to our circumcision clinic.
