Visit to Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen

A very successful meeting

In 2016 we met for the first time with Dr. Michael Vestergaard Thomsen, in order to show him our implants.

This was a very special year because doctors Lisa Toft, Rikke Bredgaard, Rocío Caballero Gamiz and all the plastic surgeons of the Rigshospitalet were able to meet with us.

The situation in Denmark has changed radically since last year. While up until 2016 the hospital received an average of 10 requests for FTM surgeries per year, currently they receive three to four such requests per month, including those from patients in all stages of transition.

Patients are always learning more about the various solutions available at different stages of their transitions. According to this Danish working group, requests from FTM patients will continue increasing as the team evolves and perfects its skills. As with any team performing FTM and MTF surgeries, they need to be accompanied by a team of psychologists to assess the viability of the surgeries.

ZSI produces implants specifically designed for the FTM population. We’ll follow up with this motivated team, to support them and share our experiences.
