Pricing for Boys & Teens

The cost for circumcising an older boy or adolescent will depend on the age of the child and on any complicating factors.

We recommend booking a consultation appointment as an initial step.

If your son requires circumcision as a toddler, child, or teen it is best to review the situation with our circumcision doctor so that you can make a fully informed choice, and so that we can confirm how much the circumcision will cost.

Common Questions

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 60,000 procedures.

We use this technique because it provides a quick and virtually painless experience for the child and has 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 and Dr. Gordon Kee are the only certified providers of Pollock Technique™ circumcision in Ottawa and Gatineau.

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.

What are the benefits and costs of circumcision?

Circumcision has been the topic of debate for many decades. Research and scientific studies indicate that there are a number of medical benefits that result from this procedure.

Circumcision benefits include:

  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was reduced by 53% to 60%.
  • Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) was reduced by 28% to 34%.
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) was reduced by 32% to 35%.
  • Among female partners of circumcised men, bacterial vaginosis was reduced by 40% and Trichomonas vaginalis infection was reduced by 48%. As many of these studies were done in developing countries, it is possible that the protective effects of circumcision may be lower in Canada.

OHIP circumcision
Additional health benefits of circumcision include the following:

  • Lower risk of getting cancer of the penis, a rare type of cancer.
  • Lower risk of urinary tract infections during the first year of life. Urinary tract infections during the first year of life can be serious and may lead to hospitalization. An uncircumcised baby boy has a 1 in 100 chance of getting a urinary tract infection during the first year of life, compared with a 1 in 1000 chance for a circumcised baby boy.
  • Prevention of foreskin infections.
  • Prevention of phimosis, a painful condition in which the foreskin retracts. Circumcised males do not get this condition.
  • Easier genital hygiene.
  • Studies now show that circumcision may also significantly reduce Prostate Cancer

Because studies have indicated a link between circumcisions and improved health and lower incidence of serious, sometimes deadly diseases, demand for infant circumcision has increased.
