GRS Montréal surgeons meet the most recent Standards of Care established by WPATH.

International and multi-disciplinary association of clinical professionals

WPATH is an international and multi-disciplinary association of clinical professionals who collaborate to develop recommendations, standards, and guidelines and who contribute to the development of policies, professional education programs, and clinical studies for the health of transsexual, transgender, and gender non-conforming people. WPATH’s Standards of Care, Version 7, published in 2012 are the most recent.

For GrS Montréal, the pre-surgery process is not limited to the Standards of Care. In order to ensure a safe perioperative process, the GrS Montréal team will ensure to ask you, beginning with your first contact with us, for any additional information considered essential and relevant to the evaluation of your case. Contributing to the success of your transition and to your gender reassignment surgery is a source of motivation for both our surgical and care teams. This motivation is reflected in the support we offer our clientele during the surgical step of their journey. Our expertise and experience allow us to offer the best care and services and guide you to the appropriate resources when necessary.

Your surgeon will remain involved in monitoring your care and treatment in relation to your surgery for as long as necessary.

Each Canadian province has its own surgery reimbursement program. Please note that while GrS Montréal surgeons meet the most recent WPATH Standards of Care, your particular province’s program may require you to provide them with additional or different documents than those requested by our surgeons. You can find information from your provincial government. If you are an American citizen or a citizen of another country, check with the health department of your state or provincial government and/or your insurance company.
