VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA , CANADA, June 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- “We are proud to introduce Shang Ring Circumcision into Canada and pleased with it’s reception by our patients”— Dr. Jack Chang MD, Pollock Clinics

There are a number of reasons why men may choose an adult circumcision procedure. Some require circumcision as a cure for conditions like phimosis (an overly tight foreskin) while others choose circumcision for cosmetic and personal reasons.

With the recent introduction of Shang Ring circumcision into Canada, men now have two adult circumcision methods available to them at Pollock Clinics.

What is Shang Ring Circumcision?

Shang Ring circumcision is quick, virtually painless and bloodless procedure that provides a suture-free circumcision for men.

This method was developed in China through the backing of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Pollock Clinic’s Dr. Jack Chang and Dr. Neil Pollock have traveled to China to train in this technique and they are the first Canadian doctors to offer Shang Ring adult circumcision.

The Shang Ring consists of two concentric medical grade plastic rings: an inner ring with a silicone band and an outer, hinged ring that acts as a ligature. The Shang Ring is removed after one week.

The Shang Ring has been proven safe and effective in clinical trials and has received World Health Organization qualification, as well as certification from Health Canada.

Benefits of the Shang Ring method include:

- reduced pain
- minimal bleeding
- no stitches
- requires no bandages
- showering as normal during recovery
- minimal time off work needed


A Canadian First

Pollock Clinics has been a Canadian leader in offering adult circumcision for decades. Their decision to invest in overseas training in the Shang Ring method was the logical extension of ongoing commitment to offering the highest standard of care they can.

Dr. Chang and Dr. Pollock trained in China on use of the Shang Ring device and had the pleasure of visiting the SNNDA high tech manufacturing facility to see how the rings are produced and prepared for medical use.

Dr. Chang led the application for Health Canada approval of the Shang Ring method and this approval was granted in December of 2017.

Dr. Chang has been performing Shang Ring adult circumcision at Pollock Clinics in Vancouver since January of 2018.

Options for Adult Circumcision

Shang Ring is one of two types of adult circumcision procedures offered at Pollock Clinics. Both the Shang Ring method and the Pollock Technique™ are offered.

The Pollock method employs local anesthetic and quick surgical technique, with use of a Mogen Clamp and skin glue closure – different from the Shang Ring is several respects.

The doctors at Pollock Clinic choose the adult circumcision method that will best apply for each patient. Having options enhances outcomes.
