Experienced Circumcision Doctor – Dr. Tim McAuliff
Dr. Tim McAuliff
Dr. Tim McAuliff is a well known and respected emergency department physician and hospital staff doctor with experience at several Texas hospitals. He performs baby circumcisions in at Gentle Procedures Dallas at our Plano clinic as his primary medical practice.
Dr. McAuliff has chosen to focus his clinic to only two surgical procedures and baby circumcision is one of these procedures. After extensive research on baby circumcision methods in use today, Dr. McAuliff chose to have extensive training with Dr. Neil Pollock, one of North America’s foremost authorities on baby and child circumcision.
Dr. Pollock’s research into developing a quick and virtually pain free approach to circumcision has been widely recognized in North America. Dr. McAuliff is the first physician to introduce Dr. Pollock’s techniques to Texas, and his clinic has grown enormously as a result. Parents are relieved to have a virtually pain-free options for the circumcision of their baby boys.

The Circumcision Experience at our Texas Location
We believe that there is nothing better for a baby’s comfort than the presence of a parent. Your baby is always with you, and you are welcome and encouraged to be in the private room during the procedure. Parents are never asked to wait in another room while the circumcision is being done. Soft music is played creating a calm, relaxing environment for your baby.
Babies, if they remain awake during the procedure, are soothed by a pacifier made up of natural ingredients. At Gentle Procedures, it is not uncommon for babies to sleep right through their circumcision. We really are gentle.
We recognize that warmth is part of a comfortable environment for your baby. The procedure room will be kept warm and is equipped with a local thermostat so that each family can create the right temperature for their baby.
Infant Circumcision Guide
Our Texas Location
Each year, there are over a million circumcisions performed in North America. Newborn circumcision, when performed properly, is quick and safe. The medical benefits accrue from infancy through old age.
In 2012, The American Academy of Pediatrics published in a Policy Statement that; “current evidence indicates that the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks”. For more information on the risks and benefits of baby circumcision, please click here.
It is Dr. McAuliff’s position (as well as the position of a national pediatric society) that; “When parents are making a decision about circumcision they should be advised of the present state of medical knowledge about its benefits and harms. Their decision may ultimately be based on personal, religious or cultural factors”.
We would also add that informed decision making is a critical step in any surgical procedure. The same applies for adult circumcision performed at our Texas clinic – and in general for any medical procedure.
Why do doctors recommend the Gentle Procedures Clinic for circumcision?
Dr. McAuliff uses the Pollock Technique, a quick and virtually painless procedure pioneered by Dr. Neil Pollock and safely performed on over 50,000 infants.
For a video demonstration of Dr. Pollock’s circumcision technique, click here.
Our procedure takes only a few minutes (many times quicker than most hospital circumcisions). We use extensive pain control methods including Tylenol, a sugar solution (to reduce pain perception), a topical freezing cream, and a local anesthetic injection (both short- and long-acting).
There are extremely low complication rates.
For your peace of mind, Dr. McAuliff is available 24 hours a day on his personal cell phone. All families are given his contact information if any concerns should arise so they can reach the doctor directly at any hour.
We do not charge any hospital administration fees.
Why do Texas parents choose to circumcise their sons?
An infant circumcision is often undertaken for cultural and religious reasons, and there can be health benefits as well:
It reduces the risk of urinary tract infection.
It reduces the risk of penile infection also called balanoposthitis.
It eliminates the need to do it later in life when up to 6% of boys will require a circumcision because of various problems.
When adult or teen circumcision is done later in life, it is a more costly, difficult, and riskier procedure that can require a general anesthetic, and it is also more painful.
Circumcision reduces the risk of getting some sexually transmitted diseases including Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and AIDS (HIV).
It reduces the risk of penile cancer and cervical cancer in partners.
Circumcised men have less risk of sexual dysfunction later in life.
Whatever your reasons for pursing a circumcision for your son, please feel free to contact us with your questions or to schedule an appointment whenever you are ready.
Why do some parents choose not to circumcise their sons?
They are concerned that they may be doing a procedure on an otherwise healthy baby that may cause pain or complications.
They wonder whether their child will wish that he had not been circumcised at a later time.
Some parents can be less interested in following cultural and religious traditions.
They are unsure of the medical reasons in favor of a circumcision.
What is Infant Male Circumcision? Why Are Babies Circumcised?
Parents sometimes ask about why circumcision should be done, and what type of circumcision is best. On these questions we can answer that the decision on why to circumcise is a personal one that will be made within your family based on your traditions and values.
There are some potential health benefits to male infant circumcision and there are also reasons not to circumcise baby boys. Our recommendation is that you make an informed a decision as possible, and the answer to the question of why to circumcise that you come to will be unique to you and your family.
Circumcision is prescribed by both Judaism and Islam, and many Christians and people of other religious backgrounds also choose circumcision for health and cosmetic reasons, or to continue family tradition.
Many American men are circumcised, as infant circumcision was routinely done on almost all male babies during an important period of time for health reasons.
What is Circumcision?
Circumcision is a simple operation that involves removal of the foreskin that sheaths the head of the penis. There are a number of very different methods used today for circumcision and the application of anesthesia.
The Pollock Technique for infant circumcision allows for a virtually painless and bloodless procedure to be safely performed in minutes. This technique was developed by Dr. Pollock and is used by Dr. McAuliff at Gentle Procedures Dallas.
The Pollock Technique is not used by other circumcision doctors in Dallas despite the evident advantages for the patient and familiy, because it is relatively new and more difficult to learn. Doctors trained on the Pollock Technique are able to provide a relatively painless procedure that minimizes stress on the infant boy and his parents.
If you are planning to circumcise your son, please consider the methods used by different doctors in making your decision on what circumcision clinic to choose.
What Types of Circumcision Are Best?
There are different circumcision techniques practiced by different doctors but the main “circumcision types” are simply circumcised and uncircumcised. We are occasionally asked about a “tight circumcision” or a “low circumcision”, but our method is designed to give the same result in all cases and we do not offer a choice of different circumcision types – and we apply our method in all cases except where a patient may present with a unique situation requiring a unique approach.
While all circumcision methods generally seek a similar result – some are better than others at achieving a consistent outcome with minimal pain and risk of complications. At Gentle Procedures Clinics we only use the Pollock Technique because we believe it is one of the safest and most comfortable methods for male circumcision available today. The method we use minimizes pain for the infant via application of multiple modalities to reduce it, including:
Tylenol before the procedure
Numbing cream applied before the anaesthetic injection
A dorsal penile block (a freezing injection) that removes all feeling from the penis
A sugar pacifier to keep the baby distracted
Post-circumcision follow-up to quickly spot any issues.
Additionally, our doctor also controls environmental factors in the procedure room to maximize the patient’s comfort. We maintain the temperature at a warm and comfortable level and may play music to help provide a calm ambiance during the brief operation.
Why a Circumcision Doctor
It is possible to get infant boys circumcised in a non-medical setting for religious reasons. We strongly recommend that even in this case the circumcision be performed only by trained, experienced, and licensed medical doctors. Many mohelim meet this criteria, and some may not.
If you are considering a circumcision done by someone who may not be a licensed doctor, we recommend a careful evaluation of their credentials.
