Transgender surgery: You could seek out physicians through wpath, the world professional association for transgender health: http://www.Wpath.Org/ there's a "find a provider" link on the right side of the menu bar. You can put in your state and go from there. There are some providers in mn, and wpath headquarters is in minneapolis.

Try WPATH.org: The referral directory published by the world professional association for transgender health (wpath) is reliable place to start: http://bit.Ly/1ntyqde even if you can't find someone in mn, you can try calling surgeons in nearby states for recs. Also, there are various listings you'll find simply using google - ; in some cases you'll find reviews of those physicians. I'd seek lots of info!

Orchiectomy only?: Sometimes it can be more difficult to find a surgeon who will do orchiectomy only rather than full Sexual Reassignment Surgery. Check the webpage for WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health). Or look on the Internet for local TG support groups in your area. LGromko MD

A 68-year-old male asked:

Difference bwtween orchiectomy and lhrh treatment? Which one has more advantages?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Erik Goluboff

Neither: Orchiectomy is permanent and is a small surgical procedure (cheap). Lhrh treatment (exp) means seeing your doctor every 1-6 months for an injection (no surgery, reversible), so if you lose insurance coverage your testosterone can rise without the injection and the cancer can grow. Most patients have lhrh nowadays but orchiectomy, if you think hormone treatment will be lifelong, is also an option.

Not by certified Dr.: Trans-gender may well be genuine and OK to register with a urologist who would agree to perform operation after age 18. This would be best advice & help by a compassionate & understanding surgeon. Subject may well require further urologic trans-gender surgery later on.
