Over 20 years ago, before beginning to perform circumcision procedures, Dr. Pollock travelled to many cities in North America researching first hand what he believed to be the most effective techniques used by the most experienced doctors.
After carefully studying their most effective strategies, Dr. Pollock put together his own approach to these surgeries, combining key elements of what he learned.
With years of practice and additional experience, he further refined the entire process, to create what has become known today as “The Pollock Technique” for infant circumcision – a virtually painless method preferred by parents and doctors.
