What is the Gender Center?
The Gender Center treats, researches, and provides education about gender associated diseases (GAD) including gender identity disorder (GID). Today, national insurance coverage for sex reassignment surgery has been approved. Therefore, this center plays an important role as a training institute to cultivate GID medical specialists. We developed the world’s first flap combination phalloplasty and introduced recto-sigmoid colon vaginoplasty using a laparoscope.
We have researched sex organ transfer homosexually and heterosexually for the first time uterine transplantation. We have global partners that include Ghent Univ. in Belgium, Vrije Univ. in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Dong-A Univ. in Korea, and Chulalongkorn Univ. in Thailand.
