Dedicated Winnipeg Circumcision Centre

Buenafe Clinic specializes in a virtually painless circumcision operation for baby boys, older boys, teens and adult men. Our clients come from across Manitoba (and some from Ontario) because our circumcision procedure and Dr. Buenafe’s expertise is considered the optimal experience for circumcision at any age.

Our team of dedicated medical professionals understands the concerns of parents for their babies, as well as the situation of newborns being integrated into family life. We do our best to provide a private and personalized experience for our clients.

Adult men are also an important client group at our circumcision clinics – because there are few facilities with the level of focus, expertise, and experience that our centre brings to adult circumcision. Our in-office procedure under local anaesthetic is the most convenient procedure available, and offers excellent cosmetic results. 

Our doctors and staff are happy to assist you with any questions or concerns that you may have, and are available by phone, or by booking a consultation. The clinic generally has appointments available within a few days and you can request an appointment now if desired.

At our Winnipeg clinic near McPhillips Street and Jefferson Ave, families are greeted in a friendly, professional manner. Because we are a specialized clinic, you’ll know that any other families with their babies are there for this same procedure.

We want to create a home-like atmosphere that caters to your baby’s needs. We pride ourselves in providing a unique, personal, family service.

After the circumcision, Dr. Jay or Dr. Tanner will follow up to check up on your baby’s progress and answer any questions that the parents may have. A follow-up appointment and printed aftercare instructions will be given to families as part of our professional service.

Let us provide the highest quality medical service for you and your baby in a caring environment.

Infant Circumcision at Our Centre

We believe that there is nothing better for ensuring 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. Research shows that pleasant flavours can further reduce pain perception.

At Buenafe Clinic, it is not uncommon for babies to sleep right through their circumcision.

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.

Why Choose Buenafe clinics for Adult Circumcision?

Adult circumcision is undertaken by our clients for a variety of reasons. Some men get themselves circumcised at an adult age for personal or cosmetic reasons.

Other seek relief from an overly tight foreskin (including phimosis) or other conditions that can be ameliorated via an adult circumcision procedure.

Whatever the reason a mature man seeks to get circumcised (at any age), we are pleased to offer the safe and gentle adult circumcision care in Manitoba.

Our circumcision doctors perform adult circumcision regularly and our Pollock Technique™ and Shang Ring methods can offer the desired cosmetic results with the minimum discomfort.

No Hospital Visit for Circumcision

Importantly – a general anaesthetic is not required – and this significantly reduces the risk and complexity of the procedure. 

With the use of multiple local anesthetic only we eliminate the need for a hospital setting and are able to perform the circumcision procedure for adult age males in our Winnipeg circumcision clinic on an in-office-procedure basis.

Our Pollock Technique™ and Shang Ring circumcision methods reduces procedural complexity and permits us to safely and efficiently perform adult circumcision procedures for Manitoba men in our clinic.

Getting Circumcised as an Adult

If you are considering getting yourself circumcised, please contact us for a consultation. We recommend a consultation appointment with Dr. Jay or Dr. Tanner prior to your final decision on whether you want to get circumcised so that you can get answers to your specific questions.

As with any surgery, there are some risks, so it is necessary that you do your research and make a fully informed decision. We will be pleased to respond to your questions about the procedure and confirm appointment availability.

You can call us during clinic hours, or use the Circumcision Cost Confirmation form or Appointment Request Form to take the next step.

Why do so many doctors recommend Buenafe Clinic for circumcision?

Manitoba family doctors refer patients to our clinic for circumcision because that is our expertise.

Dr. Jay & Dr. Tanner use the Pollock Technique™ for baby circumcision, a quick and virtually painless procedure pioneered by Dr. Neil Pollock and safely performed on over 80,000 infants.

For a video demonstration of Dr. Pollock’s circumcision technique, click here.

Our procedure takes only a minute (10 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. Jay & Dr. Tanner are available 24 hours a day on their 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 at our private clinic.

An infant circumcision is often undertaken for cultural and religious reasons, and there can be health benefits as well. Our Muslim clients circumcise their babies in accordance with their traditions, and many other families simply choose to carry on a family or cultural tradition, or seek the health benefits that may come from male circumcision:

It reduces the risk of urinary tract infection.

It reduces the risk of penile infection also called balanoposthitis.

It eliminates the need for circumcision later in life when up to 6% of boys will require a circumcision because of various problems.

It 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.

They do not want to cause pain or complications to an otherwise healthy baby.

They are concerned that their child may wish later on that he had not been circumcised.

Some parents can be less interested in following cultural and religious traditions.

They are unaware of the medical reasons in favour of a circumcision.

Circumcision Clinic FAQ – What is circumcision?

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 some 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 part of 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. At Buenafe Clinic we perform circumcision for families and for men that have chosen the procedure for a wide variety of cultural, personal, health, and medical reasons.

Many Canadian men are circumcised, as infant circumcision was routinely done on a majority of male babies in the 1970’s for health reasons. Data from

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 standard procedure 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 the Buenafe circumcision clinic in Winnipeg we use the Pollock Technique™ and Shang Ring methods because we find them to be safe and relatively comfortable methods for male circumcision.

The method we use minimizes pain for the patient 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 (not used in adult circumcisions).
  • 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.

It is possible to get baby 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 ritual circumcision practitioners 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.
