Gender Surgery Specialists
One of the characteristics that most define IM GENDER is its more than 20 years serving the needs of transgender people, as well as their families and companions.
At IM GENDER we understand that when a person makes the decision to undergo genital surgery, he or she needs to have all the information before taking that step, as well as all the emotional and psychological support, in many cases.

WPATH, the transgender people’s health association
The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) is a professional organisation dedicated to the study and treatment of transgender people.
WPATH recognises that health depends not only on good clinical care, but also on a social and political environment that provides and ensures social tolerance, equal rights and full citizenship. Health is promoted through public policies and legal reforms that foster respect and equal rights for sexual and gender diversity, and that eliminate prejudice, discrimination and stigma. WPATH is committed to advocating for these policy changes and legal reforms.
The Standards of Care set out by WPATH are flexible to meet the diverse health care needs of trans and gender-variant people. The proposed criteria for surgical treatments are guidelines that practitioners can adjust as needed, which may result from a person’s anatomical, social, or psychological situations. These alternatives must be recognised as such, explained to the person, and documented through informed consent to ensure quality care and legal protection of the person.
