Plan 45-60 minutes for your first visit. You will meet with an endocrinologist who has special training in transgender medicine. While not required, any records from therapists or primary physicians can be provided before or during your visit.
You will discuss treatment options and learn about expected outcomes and any potential complications. Gender-affirming hormone therapy is provided with an “informed consent” model. This means our endocrinologist will work with you to determine the best path forward and ensure you understand all the risks and benefits of gender-affirming therapy.
You will receive information about other services provided within the Washington University Transgender Center, including top and bottom surgeries. We will make all referrals to our service providers, as appropriate for your needs.
We are here to help.
