Dr Van Vu

Dr Van Vu claims that circumcision reduces the incidence of Urinary Tract Infections in infants, and that intact boys are 10 times more likely to get a UTI. This information is based on flawed studies, and further analysis of that data has shown that 50 to 100 boys would need to be circumcised to prevent just 1 UTI. What is really interesting is that Dr Vu even admits on his website that the surgery actually causes infections in 2% of the boys he circumcises, and these types of infections caused by circumcision are more serious that UTIs.

The reasons that these Doctors come up with to try to convince you to amputate part of your baby’s penis can be quite astonishing, and this next one is a great example of this. Apparently, Dr Van Vu suggests that cervical cancer is more common in partners of men who have not been circumcised. So he is suggesting that you should cut off part of your son to provide a reduced risk of cervical cancer to his potential partners in 20 years time or more? Shouldn’t she be looking at ways to reduce her risk by practicing safe sex and not smoking? See the statement from the American Cancer Society on the circumcision and cervical cancer myth.

    I got a medical procedure (circumcision) done on my son (5 year & 6 months old), by Dr Van Vu on 23 Sep’11. It was done using Plastibell method, which I later heard: was applicable for boys under one year old, and not suitable for boys older than one year. Because of the Dr’s irresponsible, immoral and dangerous act my son and my family had gone through huge pain and suffering. I even could have lost my only child. We ended up in hospital couple of times, and a regular circumcision was done by W&C hospital, causing huge stress and pain. The doctor is causing threat to young life. I do not recomend anyone to this Dr for circumcision, because he just do it for money without any responsibility and care. I do not want anyone’s boy goes through the pain, suffering and life threatening situation as my one has gone through.

      my ex who barely knows his sons took my 4 year old to this clinic yesterday and had my son circumcised without my consent or knowledge. He has never had an infection in his 4 years. There was no reason except because my ex decided to do it. The shit is about to hit the fan.

      • Hi Jo, I am so sorry to hear this. You may be interested in this site, if you havn’t already seen it.

        thank you Simon i will check it out. I now have to help my son get over the trauma of strangers holding him down while his dad stood there and watched him get butchered. I have received amazing support from everyone i have consulted and thank them all.

    Hi jo, that is absolutely awful, This is why we need to get laws passed to protect children and for both parents to be consulted for medical procedures.

    My brother was cut at a young age and it changed him from a caring and trusting boy to an aggressive, bullying person who has difficulty with trust and forming relationships even to this day.
