How urologists can be involved in transgender medicine

Video

“In addition to having a well-rounded urology residency experience, where you're gaining surgical exposure to all the different aspects of urology, I think it's really important to add on and delve into a fellowship in gender affirming surgery,” says Geolani Dy, MD.

In this video, Geolani Dy, MD, and Gaines Blasdel discuss the types of training available for urologists to undertake if they want to include gender affirming care in their practices. Dy is an Assistant Professor of Urology and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon, who specializes in gender-affirming surgery within the OHSU Transgender Health Program. She also led the creation of Transgender and Non-Binary Surgery Allied Research Collective (TRANS-ARC), which focuses on patient-centered outcomes of genital gender-affirming surgery. Blasdel is a transgender man and gender affirming surgery outcomes researcher at NYU Langone Health in New York City, New York. He is also a TRANS-ARC Steering Committee Member.
