Hello, I'm a 21 year old male and have phimosis. I am looking for a urologist in southern California that will either do a preputioplasty or dorsal slit for me instead of a full circumcision. I went to one local urologist and he insisted I get a circumcision however I do not want that done. Every other urologist I've called will only do circumcision.Does anyone know of any doctors in so-cal that will not try to get me to get circumcised? I've tried stretching and it helped a little bit, but did not solve my problem.I did find one doctor in Beverly hills that will do it (http://drsafir.com/index.html) however I'm leaving to college in a couple weeks and the soonest he could do it wouldn't be until I left (I'm not going to be within driving distance).The college I'm going to is about a 5 hour drive from any major city, so trying to find someone up there who can do it probably won't happen.There's so much information online about how you should avoid circumcisions and get a preputioplasty instead, but it's nearly impossible to find a doctor to do the surgery (at least in the US)..Thanks for your help.

I don't think you're going to get much help on that subject. Given that the US is for the most part a country that circumcises, I would imaging that the procedure is somewhat rare, in expecially here
The best doctor in Southern California, who does not do any circumcisions - only repairs them; also does foreskin reconstruction and did mine in July 2005.
