We offer a variety of care options related to gender affirmation. These may include:

  • Puberty-blocking treatments
  • Cross-hormone therapies
  • Gender-affirming surgery (available only for patients aged 18 and older)

At the first gender affirmation visit, patients and their families will meet with one of our pediatric endocrinologists and a mental health provider experienced in gender variance. We will discuss the risks and side effects of any proposed care options, and work together to learn what support systems are already in place and determine what else our patients may need.
