Dr. Adrienne Carmack, M.D.[a 1], is a board-certified urologist, intactivist and mother of three children, none of whom are circumcised. She is the author of "Reclaiming My Birth Rights: A Mother’s Wisdom Triumphs Over the Harmful Practices of Her Medical Profession"[1] and The Good Mommy's Guide to her Little Boy's Penis.[2]

Dr. Carmack is member of the Advisory Board of Your Whole Baby.

When I first saw the intactivist message, I laughed. But, when I did my research as a counseling M.D.[a 1], I realized they were right.
– Adrienne Carmack, American urologist (Intact Asheville)[3]

Dr. Carmack has been studying urology since 2003. She went into urology because she loved the mix of emergency and long-term care. Some patients need a quick fix, and some need long-term help exploring their illness and finding the best treatment. Urology is a fun and rewarding specialty that offers great potential to help others!

Unfortunately, Dr. Carmack has also witnessed the harm that often comes from medical interventions. In her training, repairing complications from newborn circumcision, a completely unnecessary surgery, was a frequent task that had to be performed.

Dr. Carmack was an outstanding speaker at the 2014 Genital Autonomy Symposium in Boulder, CO.

Dr. Carmack is on the Board of Directors of Doctors Opposing Circumcision.

Georganne Chapin recently invited Dr. Carmack to join Intact America's Board of Health Professionals, a title which Dr. Carmack graciously accepted.

Award for intactivism

Dr. Carmack was chosen "Intactivist of the Month" by Intact America.
