    Surgeons at Osmania Hospital in Hyderabad successfully performed a laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy on a 23-year-old trans male. This procedure is part of a gender-affirming process to permanently transform the individual into a male.

    The surgery was carried out as the first stage procedure under the Transgender persons’ Healthcare services. Before the surgery, the patient, Sompelly Soni (Yashwanth Kumar), underwent hormone replacement therapy. This treatment was provided by the endocrinology team after confirming the diagnosis of gender dysphoria, where there is a mismatch between biological sex and gender identity.
