SickKids of Toronto, Ontario has a “clinic” that encourages and performs infant genital mutilation on UnSickKids, ironically a symptom of a sick society that lacks medical ethics and devalues boys, men, and male sexuality.
He ‘works’ at the Newborn Circumcision Clinic at SickKids of Toronto, Ontario. He either performs or supervises infant genital mutilations, also known as circumcisions, on healthy (not SickKids) newborn baby boys, and alas, for no medical reason.
He knows this amputation of healthy tissue is unnecessary, unethical, and risky, yet he continues to perform it and/or directs others to perform it, under threat of discipline or termination.

Here’s his bio from the website:
“Armando Lorenzo, MD, FRCSC, ABU Board Certified
Paediatric Urologist, The Hospital for Sick Children
Associate Professor, Department of Surgery, University of Toronto
Dr. Armando Lorenzo is a native of Panama, where he completed medical studies graduating easily at the top of his class. He completed his Urology Residency at the University of Texas Southwestern medical School, in Dallas, Texas and began his fellowship at SickKids in 2004. Lorenzo has consistently won top medical and urological honours in his native panama, the US and Canada.
Most recently he was the recipient of an American Urological Association Research Fellowship for 2006-07, where he has been working with Dr. Darius Bägli in the field of bladder pathomechanics. Equally versed in the language of basic science and outcomes research, he will be specializing in the latter following completion of an MSc in Epidemiology though the Faculty of Medicine Department of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation.
Well published in several areas of Urology, Lorenzo also has a keen interest in enhancing minimally invasive surgical alternatives for patients, and establishing a field of outcomes research in paediatric urology which has not formally existed up to now. Lorenzo is a superbly gifted technical surgeon with an inquiring mind, and boundless enthusiasm for improving the life of the young patients we all care for.”
Under “What to expect during your visit,” we read:
You and your baby will meet a urology fellow and a registered nurse. Before circumcision, the doctor who will perform the procedure will speak with you. This is a discussion of the reasons for circumcision, the benefits, risks and alternatives, and ensures that you understand what will happen during the procedure. You will have lots of time to ask questions.
You should discuss what pain control measures will be used during and after the procedure. Your doctor may use a local anesthetic. Swaddling, oral sugar solutions or acetaminophen (Tylenol) may be given as well, but should not be used as the primary method of pain relief.
To perform the procedure, the doctor places the baby on a special table and cleans the baby’s penis and foreskin. First, the baby gets medicine so he won’t feel pain. This might be a cream on the skin or a needle into the base of the penis. Then they use special tools to cut off the foreskin. The doctor completes the procedure by wrapping a bandage (called gauze) around the baby’s penis to protect it from rubbing against the diaper.
The baby may cry during the procedure and for a short while afterward. Local anesthesia can greatly reduce your baby’s discomfort.
The baby will feel pain, despite the above lie, and the alternative to this is no circumcision , with no risks, unlike this procedure that results in scarring, loss of sensitivity, loss of foreskin function, sometimes lifetime complications needing further surgery, and death.
