Impressive Surgical and Business Experience
Dr. Pollock founded Gentle Procedures Clinic (originally named Pollock Clinics) over 20 years ago. Since then he has gathered an incredible amount of surgical experience having carried out over 35,000 circumcisions and 15,000 vasectomies.
Dr. Pollock also gained critical experience over the last 20 years in understanding the nuances of how to set up, market and grow successful surgical clinics. His desire to share both his surgical and business experience with other physicians led Dr. Pollock to create this opportunity that is being offered to other physicians.
The Program in Detail – What We Bring to the Table
Doctor's Surgical Training
The core or our program is the world-class training on circumcision and vasectomy procedures.
Dr. Pollock and our most experienced affiliated doctors will provide weeks of surgical training and perform procedures with you in their clinic.
Our approach results in accelerated expertise acquisition and our doctors finish training ready to perform surgeries in their own clinic.
You will have an initial training period for either circumcision or no-scalpel vasectomy, with another training session for the second procedure in the first 3 to 6 months with Gentle Procedures.
You will finish your training with an advanced level of skill and technique relative to many of the existing providers in your home market – and you will have ongoing access to a network of peers who are all expert vasectomy and circumcision surgeons.

Learn how Dr. Pollock has transformed his life both professionally and personally by focusing on these niche surgical procedures
After ten years of a very busy, broad based family practice I was burning out. I love medicine, but the pace and stress of general practice was wearing me down. Couple that with the demands of a young family and I was feeling trapped and overwhelmed.
While reflecting on my work-life balance I received a flyer advertising the opportunity with Gentle Procedures. I took a chance and flew across the country to meet Neil. We had dinner together to discuss the business opportunity, and I then spent a day in clinic with Neil to see if the procedures were actually as good as advertised. I was blown away. From the procedures themselves, to the entire Gentle Procedures process of training, launching the business and ongoing support – it is all very thorough and impressive.
So I took the plunge, invested the time and money, and was up and running quickly. I have NO REGRETS. I have learned so much, felt so supported, and have already started to see the benefits in my life. I highly recommend this opportunity. It’s a game changer.
