An American surgeon dubbed “Dr Frankenstein” has revealed the significant downsides of performing genital re-shaping surgeries on transgender children and adults, saying that patients face lifetime of infertility, incontinence, sexual dissatisfaction, and other lifelong post-op complications. Dr Blair Peters, a plastic surgeon at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), is a self-described ‘queer surgeon’ with ‘he/they’ pronouns, pink hair and a ‘passion’ for genital surgeries.
Dr Peters admits that these surgeries are experimental, some of which involve robotics.
‘We’re kind of learning and figuring out what works,’ said Dr Peters.
Surgery typically involves altering male and female genitals to match those of the opposite sex, or simply removing patients’ privates altogether (an increasingly popular procedure known as ‘nullification’). Patients frequently have problems after surgery, says Dr Peters. They can suffer ‘rectal injury and urinary incompetence,’ he said. Others struggle to achieve ‘sexual satisfaction’ from altered body parts and have worse chances of ‘future childbearing.’ Some have a ‘really demanding post-operative care process,’ he added.
Critics have called the procedures ‘evil’ and compared them to Dr Frankenstein and to Nazi-era experiments.
