Pollock Technique™ in Vancouver – and around the world.
Over the years Dr. Pollock has also been asked by leading world authorities in disease prevention to teach his techniques and coordinate charitable humanitarian missions to countries in greatest need.
For example, in 2014 Dr. Pollock was asked by Dr. Klausner of UCLA Medical Center to teach the Pollock Technique™ for circumcision to surgeons in Haiti where it would be highly useful to reduce HIV transmission. This drew the attention of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars who came to visit Pollock while in Port-au-Prince.
He also coordinated an earlier mission to help the people of Rwanda in 2008 where he taught leading surgeons his surgical techniques which have since been in use saving thousands of lives.
