Home of the American Society of Gender Surgeons

Dear ASGS members,

On behalf of the executive council, I would like to extend my gratitude to the Founding Members of our society, and a warm welcome to all current and prospective members.

The American Society of Gender Surgeons is the first professional society dedicated to the advancement of the science and practice of gender surgery. Our mission is to stimulate and encourage study and research in the field of gender surgery, to provide a forum for the presentation of the latest research and relevant clinical information, and to serve as a unifying authority on all areas of gender surgery across multiple surgical specialties.

We are excited to have formed a formal partnership with the World Professional Authority for Transgender Health (WPATH). Through this partnership, the ASGS will collaborate with the WPATH Global Education Initiative (GEI) Committee on annual CME courses. The ASGS will also contribute to Best Practice Guidelines related to gender surgery to be used as a WPATH member.

On behalf of the ASGS leadership, I welcome you to our website and request your feedback on all ASGS matters by contacting our administrative office at admin@gendersurgeons.org.
