These are precious years and I am so glad that I will be able to look back on them without regret, feeling like I had a great professional career, establishing myself as the expert in my field; but not at the expense of all the people and activities that I loved in my life.

About Dr. Pollock
Dr. Neil Pollock founded Gentle Procedures Clinic (originally named Pollock Clinics) over 25 years ago, after 5 years of practicing family medicine.
While I really enjoyed family practice, as my young family grew, I wanted and valued more personal time, to be able to enjoy family, hobbies, sport activities and social time with friends.
I really started to see the importance from a life style perspective of developing my focused surgical practice.

Developing Expertise in Circumcision and Vasectomy
Dr. Pollock limits his practice to only two surgical procedures which he has practiced and perfected over many years. The first is circumcision and the second is no-scalpel, no-needle vasectomy.
20 years ago, before beginning to perform these procedures, Dr. Pollock traveled to many cities in North America researching first-hand what he believed to be all the best 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 the most effective elements of what he learned.
He then further refined the entire process creating what has become known today as “The Pollock Technique™” for circumcision and vasectomy.
The Rewards of Specialization – For Patients and for You
Dr. Pollock is recognized for being a leader and innovator in his surgical area of expertise worldwide. Focus on circumcision and vasectomy procedures permitted him to succeed and thrive.
I was able to cut my hours in half while multiplying my income many times over. After making the change I feel that I am also able to spend all the time I need with patients now without feeling the time pressure I used to feel in family practice. In fact, the more skilled I get in surgery the quicker the procedures are to complete while outcomes continue to improve.
