children, adolescents and adults, which would later be referenced in medical journals as the Pollock Technique. Here in BC, more than 40,000 patients have undergone the quick and nearly pain-free pro- cedure that is performed in the office under local anesthesia without the need for stitches, and closer to half a million procedures using the Pollock Tech- nique have been carried out worldwide. Pollock Clinics also offers the Shang Ring circumcision technique and was the first to bring it to Canada and help it get approved by Health Canada. In 2015, he partnered with Dr. Jack Chang to meet the growing demand for surgical services at Pollock Clinics. Cumulatively they have performed more than 35,000 vasectomies using Pollock's no-scalpel, no needle, minimally invasive proce- dure that is completed during a six-minute office procedure. "Our newest initiative has been bringing our meticulous approach and expertise to a rapidly evolving area—the diagnoses and management of testosterone deficiency in men," Pollock says. Changing the game Pollock decided he wanted to create a way of sharing his knowledge and experience with col- leagues. He founded Gentle Procedures Clinic, which provides a game-changing surgical and business opportunity to primary care doctors, as well as specialists, throughout the world who are interested in expanding the in-office surgical component of their practice. Gentle Procedures today is one of the world's most successful medi- cal franchise companies. The Gentle Procedures team assists others in seamlessly integrating three on-cosmetic proce- dures into their practice: circumcision for all ages done under local anaesthetic without the need for sutures, no scalpel vasectomy, and penile frenulectomy. "We accomplish this through a meticulous sur- gical training program, and we provide the critical but frequently overlooked business development platform and training, including the ongoing admin- istrative, communications and marketing materials required to grow your new surgical practice at a rate that will astound you," Pollock says. "We have franchisees operating highly successful clinics in 24 cities and five countries worldwide, and we continue to grow at an accelerated rate annually." Even with all their innovation and new age thinking, Pollock and Chang have an old-school commitment to their patients, providing 24/7 after- care and support and two convenient locations. Pollock also offers all-natural treatments for penile enlargement and premature ejaculation as well as screening and treatment for low testoster- one. No doctor's referral is required. n P R O M O T E D C O N T E N T For more information and to access the clinic's easy online booking system, visit pollockclinics.com.
