Gold Coast Vasectomy Centre
Gold Coast Vasectomy Centre is operated by Dr Michael Read, one of Southport Doctors’ general practitioners. Dr Read has more than 30 years’ experience performing vasectomy, a minor surgical procedure blocking sperm passing from the testes to provide effective birth control. He performs an open-ended no-scalpel vasectomy, widely adopted as the preferred technique because of the lower risk of complication.

Gold Coast Circumcision Centre
Gold Coast Circumcision Centre is operated by Dr Michael Read, one of Southport Doctors’ general practitioners. Dr Read has more than 30 years’ experience performing circumcision on patients of all ages, from infants through to elderly men. Circumcision is a simple surgical procedure that removes the foreskin – a sleeve of skin covering the tip of the penis. Although infancy is the ideal time for circumcision, many adult men and teens seek circumcision for medical, health, sexual, cultural, religious and cosmetic reasons. For infants and pre-pubertal boys, Dr Read uses the Plastibell technique, whereas adults and teens require a different procedure known as a sleeve technique.
