Transgender surgery is performed as part of the treatment process for patients with “gender dysphoria” or “gender identity disorder”. From the time they were very young, transgender patients have felt that they were born with the wrong external genitalia. They view gender-altering surgery more as “gender confirmation surgery” rather as “sex re-assignment surgery”. In other words, they simply want their outward appearance to mirror the person they are inside.
All transgender-related surgical procedures are performed on patients only after appropriate psychological evaluation is in place, and it has been determined that the planned procedures are in the patient’s best interest and welfare. The Institute has an international reputation for for the quality and innovative surgical techniques provided to transitioning patients. Our transgender surgery techniques have been featured on several Discovery Health Channel and Showtime medical documentaries.
