Transgender orchiectomy

Dear Dr. Reed,

Will you perform an orchiectomy on a 72 year old patient in good health
who has finally decided after many years of grappling with my femininity
decided to take the first steep.

Jamie

Good morning Jamie,

Yes.  Transgender orchiectomy one of our most frequently performed procedures and I think you’ll find our fees are among the most affordable in the US.  The reason being,
we own our surgical center.

You will need 2 letters of therapy clearance (one from a therapist with a doctoral degree) and a letter of medical clearance with reference to an EKG, as well as routine  blood tests, such as a CBC, platelet count, PT and PTT.

Please visit our web-site http://srsmiami.com/ and especially http://srsmiami.com/orchiectomy/
for more information and before and after photos.
