Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery
In 2016 BMC established the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery. With the unified structure, patients have a single point of contact for their care needs. We are the first center in New England to provide such a comprehensive program and we are a national leader in delivery of gender affirming care.
