What is Gender Affirming Surgery?
Gender affirming surgery, also known as sex reassignment surgery (SRS) or confirmation surgery, is the surgical procedure(s) by which a transgender or non-binary person’s physical appearance and functional abilities are changed to align with the gender they know themselves to be.
Our Approach to Surgical Assessment
Denver Health adheres to the guidelines for surgical assessment as described in the World Professional Association for Transgender Health Standards of Care, 7th Version. The standards were created by international agreement using the latest scientific research on transgender health so that doctors can best meet the unique health care needs of transgender and gender-nonconforming people. Most insurance companies also adhere to these guidelines. For further information on insurance guidelines, please see our Gender Affirming Surgeries guidelines here (LINK).
Patients may provide referral letters from their own outside mental health providers, or the assessment process via our Behavioral Health team. Patients seeking to undergo the assessment at Denver Health should make an appointment with our Behavioral Health Team (LINK).
