"It’s a lot of money,” VUMC Clinic for Transgender Health’s Dr. Shayne Sebold Taylor said at one Medicine Grand Rounds lecture, video reveals. “These surgeries make a lot of money.” Taylor noted that a “chest reconstruction” can bring in $40,000 per patient, and someone “just on routine hormone treatment, who I’m only seeing a few times a year, can bring in several thousand dollars … and actually makes money for the hospital.”

Part of me has to respect this piece of shit for her honesty. She's not pretending to care about trans people’s health like Sbtthytth Gallagher or Butcher Bowers. She straight up admitted that these people are just cash cows for the hospital to slaughter and dispose of like farm animals.

Citing the Philadelphia Center for Transgender Surgery, Taylor said vaginoplasty surgeries can generate $20,000, gushing that it “has to be an underestimate,” since hospital stay, anesthesia, post-op visits, and other add-ons are not included in the total. “And the female-to-male bottom surgeries, these are huge money makers,” the doctor continued, adding that such surgeries could bring in “up to $100,000” for the hospital. Some clinics are “entirely” “supported” financially by such phalloplasty surgeries, Taylor boasted. “These surgeries are labor intensive, there are a lot of follow-ups, they require a lot of our time, and they make money,” she emphasized. “They make money for the hospital.”

Why the fuck can't they find ways to monetize procedures people actually NEED!? There must be no shortage of homeless people who need medical care. Or people who need things like sinus surgeries or breast reductions or skin removal after weight loss but never got it because of the out of pocket cost. So many people can't get necessary health care. But we're wasting resources destroying the bodies of HEALTHY people for purely cosmetic outcomes. This makes me so angry!

So glad to see how much attention this story is getting especially from politicians. Enough of the child butchery for nothing more than financial gain!!!

Ok that TransBuddy thing is seriously disturbing. Imagine a little kid getting a fuckin TRA as a "buddy"

Fuck that

Its so gross. They're not medical professionals. They're just there to pressure both the patient and the doctor into blindly affirming all hormones and surgeries.

Especially considering how often they seem to need revisions. I believe Jazz Jennings had three or four because there was so little "material" to work with.

I can’t believe the woman talking happily said that. “Phalloplasty has the potential to bring in $100,000 or more with the subsequent revisions”

These people are evil. I haven’t believed in god in nearly 20 years but these people are making the absolutely sure that there is a devil.

That floored me as well. In ETHICAL medical practice, surgery is supposed to be a LAST resort to be avoided at all costs. Every surgery carries risk. The anesthesia alone can be devastating if not done right. And the more you operate on a single area, the less likely it is that the area will heal. Any doctor who openly salivates at the thought of putting a healthy person through numerous revision surgeries should lose their license and be publicly shamed. I cannot believe they are openly celebrating this

This is so disappointing. This is one of the best hospitals in the south. They treat one of my family members for cancer there.

And they are threatening doctors who dissent as well...😾

That made me rage cry. It’s fucking sick. How dare doctors abide by their morals and Hippocratic oath!
