Intended for use by primary care providers, these summary sheets about transition-related surgeries (TRS) provide information to facilitate discussion of TRS between primary care providers and patients.
Please note that they are not exhaustive and do not replace the informed consent process between surgeon and patient.
A single file including all sheets is available, or they can be downloaded individually. Sheets are available about the following procedures:
- Breast augmentation
- Chest reconstruction
- Clitoral release
- Hysterectomy and BSO
These documents were created by clinicians at Sherbourne Health using information adapted from the Transgender Health Information Program of British Columbia, the GRS Montreal Clinic, and the Gender Identity Clinic at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
The information provided here in these sheets is generalized and is not medical advice. It is recommended that all patients have a pre-operative consultation with their surgeon to receive individualized information including the specific surgeon’s technique, complication rates and recommendations. These are dynamic documents that are subject to change, as the knowledge of transition-related surgeries changes.
