The Pollock Technique ™ for circumcision uses a Mogen clamp. When using the Pollock technique a hemostat is used to separate the foreskin from the penis shaft. The foreskin is extended over the head of the penis (no incision required) and captured in a slot on the Mogen clamp to cut off blood flow to the foreskin. The clamp stays in place while the foreskin is cut away to eliminate any bleeding. Gentle Procedures Clinic is the only clinic to offer the Pollock™ Circumcision method in Queensland.
Our approach is faster than conventional methods and offers improved cosmetic outcomes with faster recovery times. All circumcision procedures use long and short acting local anaesthetic to ensure comfort during the procedure.
We have incorporated a Staple technique for circumcision. This technique uses a sheath that extends over the foreskin and with one click the foreskin is removed and the wound is closed with tiny staples. There are a number of factors that would determine the suitability of the staple circumcision technique, some of which are:
- Prepuce and glans penis deformity (including prepuce and glans penis adhesion)
- Prepuce and glans penis infection and edema
- Suspected carcinoma of the penis
- Patients who suffer from systemic disease (such as bleeding tendency hypoproteinemia, and serious CVD)
The Pollock & Staple technique require no hospital visit or stay which saves time and money.
techniques we use delivers advanced, innovative surgical staplers that enhance clinical performance, minimize risk, and improve patient outcomes by delivering
- Clean, smooth cut

SNIPPED BUT STILL EQUIPPED ®
A Vasectomy is a safe and effective procedure that permanently prevents pregnancy. It involves a small incision in the scrotum, through which the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and most men are able to return to their normal activities within a couple of days. A Vasectomy can also provide peace of mind and freedom from the worry of unintended pregnancy.
The procedure itself takes 15 minutes, but we recommend allow 30 to 45 minutes on the day as you will have a consultation before the procedure commences and we want to ensure you are safe to discharge from our care.
Explanation of Vasectomy Terms
No Scalpel means there no incisions or stitches, medical glue is used to close the wound, which ensures very little to no scarring.
Metal Clips are not used in any Vasectomy carried out by the doctors at Gentle Procedures Clinic. The Vas tube is cauterised and placed back into your body, therefore there is no need for artificial clips.
No Needle means a needle is no longer required to deliver local anaesthetic, a device called Comfort Inn is used. High pressure air penetrates the skin and delivers the local anaesthetic.

- Our no-scalpel Vasectomy is virtually painless.
- If you have significant anxiety light sedation is available.
- After a vasectomy you will likely be sore for a couple of days.
- The discomfort is less with the our no-scalpel, no-needle technique because there is minimal injury to the tissues.
You can have sex after one week, but remember to use some other kind of birth control until your semen analysis confirms you are sterile and remember you do the test three months after a vasectomy.
- No! The only thing that will change is that you will not be able to make your partner pregnant. Your body will continue to produce the hormones that make you a man. You will have the same amount of semen. Vasectomy won’t change your voice, beard, your muscles, your sex drive, your erections, or your climaxes!
- Some men say that without the worry of accidental pregnancy and the bother of other birth control methods, sex is more relaxed and enjoyable than before.
- You should not do any heavy physical labour for seven days after your vasectomy. If your job does not involve heavy lifting, you can go back sooner. Many men have their vasectomy on Friday, so they can take it easy over the weekend and go back to work on Monday.
- NSV is extremely effective! In fact, the success rate of vasectomy in our affiliated clinics has been better than 99.9%, which is amongst the highest in the world. Our vasectomy clinic offers the same procedure and potential success rate.
- NO! after a vasectomy, there are always some active sperm in your system.
- It usually takes 2-3 months to clear them.
- You and your partner should use some other form of birth control until a semen test confirms that your semen is sperm free. You will be given semen test instructions after your vasectomy procedure.
- Most medical experts, including special panels convened by the National Institutes of Health and by the World Health Organisation, have concluded that vasectomy is a safe and simple procedure.
Vasectomy is surgery, and all surgery has some risks, such as bleeding and infection.
