Principles of transgender medicine and surgery

Gender variance is widely misunderstood, and few medical texts examine the social, legal, emotional, historical, biological, and economic issues involved. This book provides medical and health care guidelines and comprehensive information on all aspects of treatment of gender diverse individuals. This one-of-a-kind resource examines a full range of relevant data important to health care professionals. Each chapter addresses a different aspect of care, written by an authority on that sub-specialty
