We will provide you with the compassion you are entitled to while offering you the most effective and customized treatments to best serve your specific needs.
WPATH Standards of Care
WPATH standards of care require that a medical professional such as a psychologist or therapist, sexologist, or physician who prescribes gender transition related hormones provide a referral prior to any surgical procedure. This professional must have been recently in regular contact with you to qualify as a referral.
Dr. Eisemann will happily work directly with any medical professionals you are currently seeing to make sure you receive the most effective treatment possible.
If you are approaching your medical provider about this referral, please bear in mind that WPATH standards require a letter contain:
- Your general identifying characteristics
- The results of your psychosocial assessment, including any diagnoses
- The duration of your relationship with a mental health professional, including the type of evaluation and therapy or counseling to date
- An explanation that the criteria for surgery have been met, and a brief description of the clinical rationale for supporting a request for surgery
- A statement about the fact that informed consent has been obtained
- A statement that the mental health professional is available for coordination of care and welcomes a phone call to establish this
If you have questions about what will be required prior to your surgery or would simply like to discuss your options, please contact our experienced Houston transgender plastic surgeon to schedule a consultation today. Transgender procedures are performed in Dr. Eisemann’s accredited surgical facility in Houston, Texas. However, we are honored to accept transgender, transsexual, and gender nonconforming patients from across the globe.
