Finding Someone To Perform Your Circumcision
As noted throughout this site, selecting a physician or other medical practitioner to perform your circumcision (or that of your son) is very important. You must choose someone you are comfortable talking with, so that you can openly and frankly communicate your desire for the particular circumcision style you want. It is equally important that you find a person with training and experience at performing this simple but important procedure, agreeing with them the method or device to be used.
Previous editions of the CIRCLIST website have, at this point, listed a number of specialists in adult male circumcision who have in the past circumcised members of our Discussion Group. The list is now maintained by The Gilgal Society
; it covers a much wider area than just North America.
An excellent resource for locating a physician within North America is the website of the American Urological Association
. At this site, you will find a search tool that will allow you to select trained urologists in the area in which you live.
An alternative search appropriate to the USA and Canada involves going to your preferred search engine and entering the word PHALLOPLASTY. This will produce a fair number of home pages for doctors that do penile enhancements, many of whom will list circumcision amongst their services. They are all board certified urologists and most seem to have training in cosmetic/plastic surgery. Some even list their credentials on their web sites. Most have an e-mail preliminary consultation facility, so at the very least you can get some issues out of the way without cost. None should promise to use any particular technique until they have seen your penis and nobody should promise you a true “high and tight” cut if you have a short foreskin. This is why they won’t commit to a given result or technique until they can see what they have to work with.
