Helen M. Salsbury MD has been placed on the “Known Genital Mutilators” directory at neonatalcutting.org, having vehemently committed and defended countless acts of cruelty and human rights violations on newborn baby boys.
She’s part of the My Ob/Gyn medical practice in Pembroke Pines, FL.
Dr. Salsbury draws the ire of well-known intactivist James Loewen and others by defending and doubling-down on her commitment to help ignorant people maim and mutilate other people’s penises.

Under “In-office Surgery And Procedures Specialist” we see she is still cutting baby penis from healthy newborns, a “Known Genital Mutilator:”
Dr. Salsbury has been performing pain-free circumcisions since 1986. She learned of a special technique from a Jewish mohel who also happened to be a pediatrician and has used this technique ever since. The procedure, called a dorsal penile nerve block (DPNB), was first described for use in the neonatal circumcision in 1978. The DPNB numbs the entire shaft of the penis by applying lidocaine at the base of the penis alongside the dorsal nerve. Multiple studies have demonstrated both its safety and efficacy.
Other methods of anesthesia and analgesia are available such as topical creams, but Dr. Salsbury prefers the DPNB as a more humane approach since it has statistically been shown superior to all other methods in reducing the pain and stress of infant circumcision. In addition to the nerve block the baby is given oral sucrose (sugar) for comfort and a special circumcision bed is used. We welcome our parents to perform this procedure in our office where they can bring any family members who would like to observe. Babies who were born with another obstetrician are also welcome to perform their circumcision here.
