In brief: 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.

In brief: 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!

In brief: 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
