This sensitively written, comprehensive book is a must-have roadmap for every physician and caregiver as they master the techniques to support the profound journey of their transgender patients.

With the formation of the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) and academic surgical centers now accepting trainees, a new generation of physicians are committed to providing the highest level of care for transgender individuals.

This book delivers robust, essential content from internationally recognized innovators and veterans in the field, including cutting-edge techniques for all gender transition surgeries.
