Boston Children’s Hospital boasts about having the first pediatric transgender surgery center in the country, suggesting a "full suite of surgical options for transgender teens." Boston Children’s Hospital advertises their surgeries through a video series on their official YouTube channel, with titles like "What You Need To Know Before Phalloplasty Surgery." The 90 videos in the series paint a rosy picture of the genital, chest and face surgeries they offer, followed by upbeat background music.

In that video, Dr. Frances Grimstad outlines the process of getting a "gender affirming hysterectomy." It is "very similar to most hysterectomies that occur. Hysterectomy itself is the removal of the uterus, cervix, which is the opening of the uterus, and the the fallopian tubes which are attached to the sides of the uterus," Grimstad says with a smile. Grimstad says that some "gender affirming hysterectomies will also include the removal of the ovaries," in short, the entire female reproductive system.

Boston Children’s Hospital founded the Gender Multispecialty Service (GeMs) program in 2007 and welcomed patients as young as 3 years old. "At GeMS, our mission is to evaluate and care for gender-diverse children, teens, and young adults." GeMS provides "a variety of options for medical transition" that include prescribing puberty blockers, testosterone, estrogen and plastic surgery from their surgery center. "Our skilled team includes specialists in plastic surgery, urology, endocrinology, nursing, gender management, and social work, who collaborate to provide a full suite of surgical options for transgender teens and young adults," the website reads. Boston Children’s Hospital accepts the "gender-affirmative model of care," meaning that children’s beliefs about their gender are taken at face value without question. "We believe in a gender-affirmative model of care, which supports transgender and gender diverse youth in the gender in which they identify." [tweet_embed] August 10, 2022[/tweet_embed] However, "gender affirmation" care is rooted in gender ideology, which is a belief system based on the falsehood that whether someone is a man, boy, woman, or girl has nothing to do with one’s biology but instead is determined by one’s subjective and undefinable "gender identity." Thus, males can be women and girls, and females can be boys and men. Gender ideology also claims that a felt mismatch between one’s body and gender identity can be corrected by puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries, what the Boston Children's Hospital seeks to offer.
