Gender-Affirming Medicine

transgender medicine patient at the University of Kansas Health System

The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City offers a multidisciplinary approach to gender-affirming medicine, also known as transgender medicine. While working with you on your individual transformation, our goal is to alleviate gender dysphoria or strong sense of dissatisfaction or unease. Your medical needs may require a variety of services specifically planned for you. We aim to assist all people who identify as transgender, transsexual, gender variant, gender nonconforming and gender questioning.

Call 913-588-6200 to request a consultation. For more information, email our nurse program coordinator at jgay@kumc.edu.

Treatments and services

To initiate hormone treatment, our team requires a referral from a mental health professional, as outlined in the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, or WPATH, Standards of Care. We work closely with gender therapists in the region to provide continuity of care.
