Before you start treatment, you will meet with at least one member of the TISCC medical team — a doctor or nurse practitioner — and a member of the TISCC mental health team, such as a social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist. You'll have a complete medical evaluation to make sure that your treatment risks are identified and addressed. Before a surgical procedure you will be seen by the appropriate TISCC surgical team. Evaluation of your mental health ensures that any mood or mental health concerns are reasonably well-managed before you start treatment.
Prior to vaginoplasty, you will be evaluated by a TISCC medical provider. You'll also need letters of support from two mental health providers, with at least one letter coming from a TISCC mental health provider. The current surgical technique used by Mayo Clinic surgeons does not require preoperative genital hair removal. All cases are discussed at a multidisciplinary case conference that includes the entire team of medical, mental health and surgical providers.
Each person is different. Your providers will look at your specific case in order to come up with the best recommendations for you. Your health care team will work with you during your treatment and make sure your expectations are realistic. Your team wants to make sure your goals are being met, any risks are managed and your questions are answered.
