Dr. Boyle is dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive care for patients seeking gender reassignment surgery (GRS). As a board certified urologist and experienced surgeon in sexual health and reconstruction, Dr. Boyle offers comprehensive care to her patients. Whether she is performing orchiectomies, addressing genital pain, assessing urinary complaints, performing vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, genital revision surgeries, and sexual health following GRS surgery, Dr. Boyle is committed to the care and individual needs of each patient.
Dr. Boyle partnered with leading plastic surgeon Dr. Bluebond-Langner and performed a one-stage genital affirming surgery for MTF patients. The steps of the procedure include creating a neovagina, orchiectomy (if the testicles are present), and using the inverted penile skin and scrotal skin to line the vagina. The nerves and blood supply to the glans are identified and preserved to provide for sensation and orgasm, and the clitoris is formed. The clitoral hood, inner labia (labia minora), and outer labia (labia majora) are also created during this one-stage procedure.
Patients from other surgeons may seek a secondary procedure for their reconstructed genitalia. There is a wide variation in surgical technique, and patients may desire further surgery to better define or create their labia minora, remodel their labia majora, create a clitoral hood, remove spongy tissue from near the urethra that can be bothersome with sexual activity, and urethral reconstruction.
Associated procedures that we perform:
- Labiaplasty (2ndstage)
- Revision surgery
Although Dr. Boyle does not perform the primary phalloplasty procedure, she performs placement of testicular implants and is experienced in evaluating and treating the urologic concerns of men following phalloplasty and urethroplasty.
