Transitioning: A medical perspective

Caitlyn Jenner’s transition has included several surgeries and hormone therapies. From a medical perspective, what goes into a gender transition? Cori Agarwal is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery at University of Utah Health Care. She works with the transgender community, and this past fall was part of a summit on improving relationships between health care providers and the transgender population. The summit included a variety of sessions, including how to foster an understanding of treating transgender patients in mental health settings; understanding the scope of transgender medical and surgical therapies; preventative care measures; and understanding hormone replacement therapy. She is available to speak on any of these topics. To schedule an interview with Agarwal, contact Julie Kiefer at the U Health Care Department of Public Affairs.
