How should we prepare for the procedure?
We will speak with you to confirm on how to prepare for the circumcision. For infants we recommend feeding your son before coming in for the procedure, and bringing along extra diapers.
We will also have you give him infant acetaminophen. This will be reviewed with you in detail, and you can ready more about the steps before your boy’s circumcision on the Infant Circumcision page.
What circumcision method is used at your clinic?
At the Gentle Procedures Clinic, we practice the Pollock Technique™, proven effective in over 50,000 procedures. We use this technique because it provides a quick and virtually painless experience for the child and has world leading positive outcomes.
We are offering circumcision for all ages using the same technique. For children, adolescent and adult circumcision please contact us today.
For full detail on our circumcision method using the Pollock Technique™ please see the Circumcision Method page.
Dr. Mohamed Slim is the only certified provider of Pollock Technique™ circumcision in Ottawa.
Does the Ontario Health Insurance (OHIP) cover infant circumcision?
Baby circumcision is not covered by Ontario public health. You will pay directly for your child’s procedure. The price is the same whether you live in Ontario or in Quebec.
Can both Quebec & Ontario residents use Gentle Procedures Clinic’s circumcision services?
Yes. Because circumcision is not generally covered by public health programs in Quebec or in Ontario we are free to serve our clients from all provinces at the same price.
Both Ontario and Quebec residents will pay the same amount for circumcision.
Neither RAMQ nor OHIP cover elective circumcision procedures.
