Providing a safe and comfortable environment as well as expert care for all of our patients is one of our top priorities.
For our transgender patients, we provide:
- Minimally invasive hysterectomies and/or removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes, including Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomies (TLH) with or without Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomies (BSO). We generally perform these surgeries through three tiny 5 mm abdominal (laparoscopic) incisions, resulting in less pain, faster recovery, and excellent cosmetic results.
- Gynecological cancer screenings, preventive health, and problem management for transmen
- Hormone therapy for transmen and transwomen
- Post-operative care
Note that Vermont law requires health insurance plans to provide coverage for medically necessary services for transgender people, including preventive care, hormone prescriptions and management, and gender reassignment surgery, including hysterectomies. As such, it is now rarely necessary to have to pay fully out of pocket for these services. (Self-insured employer plans are not subject to this law, so they may or may not provide coverage for these services. Check your insurance plan.)
