One of our physician administrators wants to answer a letter from a woman consumer who wants transgender surgery to a male. The administrator would like to respond to the writer, who asked for the following information: some general information about transgender surgery, recovery time, the approximate length of the surgery, and any other literature about the surgery. The writer says she is a "hermaphrodite, a person with both sexes". I would like to really look good as this is the first time this person has ever asked for a search in the 11 years I have been working here, so I am appealing to you, my colleagues. When I combine exp Hermaphroditism with surgery and (econom$ or cost$), I don't get any hits. I tried google which listed some changes, but nothing that wasn't extremely scientific and no costs were involved. Medlineplus has Androgen insensitivity syndrome. I don't have anything in book collection that would address this. I would be will to talk to a surgeon that does this if I had a name to call.
