Pollock Clinics offers circumcision for all ages with the Pollock Technique™ and the Shang Ring method.
Together, our doctors have safely performed over 50,000 circumcisions. Experience is one reason why so many patients trust Pollock Clinics.
Appointments are generally available in just a few days and circumcision procedures are performed in just a few minutes at our two Vancouver clinic locations.
The Pollock Technique™ and Shang Ring technique for circumcision are virtually painless methods under long-acting local anesthetic. The procedure takes less than ten minutes for adults and approximately 60 seconds for newborns.
Pollock Clinics has changed circumcision care in British Columbia and performs the vast majority of all these procedures in the Lower Mainland. Our clinic offers virtually painless circumcision for babies, boys, teens, and adult men. Our focus on circumcision in a dedicated clinic setting helps us to provide a safe and comfortable circumcision experience for your son and your family (or for yourself in the case of an adult circumcision).

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 Pediatrics issued a statement that the health benefits of circumcision outweighed the risks. The Canadian Pediatrics Society acknowledges the potential benefits of circumcision but stops short of routine recommendation for newborns. 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.
In the case of an adult circumcision, it is a personal decision based on personal, cosmetic or health reasons.
The ideal age for infant circumcision is within the first two weeks of birth, but at our clinic we provide circumcision for males of all ages including older children, adolescents, and adults.
If you have made the decision to have your son circumcised, the best is to go ahead and schedule the procedure as soon as possible.
The Pollock Technique™ offers a quick and virtually painless option for circumcision.

Pollock Clinics provides a virtually painless circumcision procedure for baby boys, older boys, teens and adult men. Our clients come from all over the province (and beyond) because we offer circumcision procedures at any age.
We strive to provide a private and personalized experience for our clients.
Because of the high level of sensitivity and focus our team brings to the adult circumcision experience, we have become recognized as a leading provider of circumcision for adult men.
Our in-office procedure under local anaesthetic is a quick and convenient way to get an adult circumcision, and offers excellent cosmetic results.
Our doctors and staff are happy to assist you with any questions or concerns that you may have, and are available by phone, or by booking a consultation. The clinic generally has appointments available within a few days and you can request an appointment now if desired.
At Pollock Clinics, your baby’s comfort and well being is very important to us.
We want to provide an atmosphere that is warm, inviting, and stress-free for you and your family. At our lower mainland clinics in New Westminster and Vancouver families are greeted and treated in a friendly, professional manner.
We want to create a comfortable atmosphere that caters to your baby’s needs. We strive to provide a personal, family service. After the circumcision our doctor or nurse will follow up to check up on your baby’s progress and to answer any questions that the parents may have.
A follow-up appointment and printed aftercare instructions will be given to families as part of our circumcision protocols.
You can trust that our team will do our best to provide medical services for you and your baby in a caring environment.
We believe that there is nothing better for ensuring a baby’s comfort than the presence of a parent. Your baby is always with you and you are welcome and encouraged to remain in your private surgical room during the procedure. Parents are not required to wait in another room while the circumcision is being done.
Please see our Circumcision Parent Counselling Video for detail on how to prepare for your son’s circumcision as well as how to care for him in afterwards.
Babies, if they remain awake during the procedure, are soothed by a pacifier made up of natural ingredients. At Pollock Clinics, it is not uncommon for babies to sleep right through their circumcision.
We recognize that warmth is part of a comfortable environment for your baby. The procedure room will be kept warm and is equipped with a local thermostat to create the right temperature for the baby’s comfort.
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 (phimosis) or other conditions that can be addressed with an adult circumcision procedure.
Whatever the reason a mature man seeks to get circumcised (at any age), we are pleased to offer the latest in adult circumcision care. Our circumcision doctors perform adult circumcision on a daily basis, and our proven Pollock Technique™ and Shang Ring technique are known to deliver excellent cosmetic results with the minimum of discomfort.
Importantly – a general anaesthetic is not required – and this reduces the risk and complexity of the procedure. With the use of multiple local anaesthetics only, we eliminate the need for a hospital setting and are able to perform the circumcision procedure for adult age males in our circumcision clinics on an in-office-procedure basis.
If you are considering getting yourself circumcised, please contact us for a consultation. We recommend a consultation appointment with our doctors prior to your final decision on whether you want to get circumcised so that you can get answers to your specific questions.
As with any surgery, there are some risks, so it is necessary that you do your research and make a fully informed decision.
We will be pleased to respond to your questions about the procedure and to confirm on appointment availabilities and fees.
Thanks for your attention.
