The focus of this workshop is to educate the community on the most advanced surgical techniques used today for sex reassignment surgery (SRS) and the processes for feminizing “biological boys.” Presenters will discuss current approaches and options for various Male-to-Female procedures, including examples of recent outcomes, as well as the care requirements that follow these procedures.
