Orchiectomy and stop there

Dr. Reed,  I am seeking a bilateral orchiectomy.  I am a transgendered woman but at my age of 72, am asking only for an orchiectomy.  Is that allowed?

Dear Beth-Ann,

Virginia Prince said you can get on a train going from LA to New York and get off in Chicago.  You probably appear as a woman right now and you will always be regardless of whether you have a vaginoplasty.  Of course you can have an orchiectomy, and we’ll do it painlessly under local anesthesia with IV sedation.  If you wish, we can also remove the scrotum (scrotectomy)   Please look at our web-site srsMiami.com for many photographic examples.  I only wish I could show you the many happy faces of our patents with broad smiles.
