Foreskin Restoration

I'd like to begin foreskin restoration under the supervision of a doctor. Process is manual manipulation. My family doctor was unfamiliar with the process and he didn't seem to be supportive of it.  I guess I should see a Urologist.  Should a Urologist be familar with foreskin restoration?  I want to see a physician that knows of the procedure and won't think that I'm crazy.  This is something that I have thought about for over 10 years, and now I want to begin the process.   Thank you.

I would venture to say that most urologists (and most other fields) in the U.S. are unfamiliar with foreskin restoration. I have not been involved in this, only because no one has approached me about it. There are published surgical methods of restoring the foreskin, but I think that individual urologists experience with this is quite limited.
There is a relatively new subspecialty within urology called "reconstructive urology." If you desire to have a physician involved, you might consult one of these individuals. However, I do not see any need for physician involvement in just stretching the skin. Be careful that you not injure the skin with clip/clamps/tape.  Stretch slowly. Tissue expansion takes time
