B.C. government to bring lower transgender surgery to the province

Topix TG News - Fri, 11/16/2018 - 22:08

Health Minister Adrian Dix says the trans community has advocated for a number of years for improved access to care for the complex surgeries in B.C. Up until now, those wanting the surgery had to travel to Montreal or the United States, which Dix says resulted in additional medical risks associated with travelling long distances after surgery and with follow-up care. The Health Ministry says gender-affirming surgery will be available at Vancouver Coastal Health starting next year and trans people will also have improved access to publicly funded chest and breast surgeries throughout the province.
