Dr Miroslav Djordjevic, who works at New York City‘s Mount Sinai hospital and in his native Serbia, says he’s honed his technique for 15 years and is on the cusp of a revolutionary genital-swap procedure.
Most of his patients are ideal candidates, as they are typically young, healthy and in their early 20s, he added.
Podcast host Dr Robert Cykiert told DailyMail.com that the genital swap would mark a ‘major breakthrough’ in trans medicine.
Just like kidney, heart, liver and face transplants, patients who have intersex genital transplants would be at extremely high risk of rejecting their new sexual organs,’ said Dr Cykiert.
To avoid this, they would need to go on ‘long term immunosuppressive medications,’ he added.
‘These medications put patients at high risk of getting severe infections, cancers of various types, and other serious, chronic medical problems,’ he said.
One of the first studies into the side effects of trans surgeries this year revealed alarmingly high rates of post-op pain, aching during intercourse, and bladder problems, raising troubling questions for this new frontier of medicine.
A huge majority — 81 percent — of those who had gender-affirming surgery in the past five years said they endured pain simply from moving around in the weeks and months after going under the knife.
Researchers from the University of Florida and Brooks Rehabilitation, a health non-profit, showed that more than half of trans surgery patients endured pain during sex, and nearly a third could not control their bladders.
