This month we shall be looking at Gender Affirmation claims. The term Gender Affirmation is used to describe the social recognition and support for someone’s change in identity.
These types of cases involve life changing operations with life changing consequences should anything go wrong leading up to or during the procedures involved. This is why patients needs to be made aware of every risk involved in the procedure they are considering and the percentage level of that risk in order for them to make a fully informed decision as to whether they want to proceed with surgery/treatment.
Types of surgery/treatment associated with gender affirmation include, but are not limited to, chest reconstruction, mastectomy and hormone therapy.
