Gender Identity Service

Parkside Hospital offers Trans Gender Services led by our expert consultants who are supported by our team of specialist gender nurses, service leads and pathway coordinators. Here at Parkside Hospital, we offer both feminisation and masculinisation surgery.

What is Genital Reconstructive Surgery?

Genital Reconstructive Surgery (GRS) involves reshaping the male genitals to anatomically and, as far as possible, functionally resemble that of female genitalia. Prior to surgery, patients undergo hormone replacement therapy and counselling from recognised gender specialists. Other associated operations that patients may elect to have are facial feminisation surgery and breast augmentation. The Gender Identity Service at Parkside currently offers vaginoplasty, labioplasty and orchidectomy.

What support services do you offer?

One of our specialist gender nurses will be dedicated to your care, should you choose to have the surgery at Parkside Hospital. Their role is to see you through, from the first consultation to post-operative check-ups, and are available to advise you at any time. Our Clinic Coordinator will navigate your pathway with us to ensure you have continued care and support during your journey.
