Drastic Increase in the Number of Sex Change Clinics for Minors: ‘They Generate a lot of Money’

Leer en Español

Sex change clinics are on the rise in the United States. The growth, which has been occurring for fifteen years, also coincides with the rapid increase in transgender identity among young Americans.

Experts explain that the situation is due to the fact that sex change operations generate large revenues. “It’s natural to assume that the medical profession has increased supply in response to demand for its services. Like most professionals, physicians and surgeons also seek to maximize their income,” Joseph Burgo, a California-based clinical psychologist, told the Daily Caller News.

He further added, “The number of pediatric gender clinics has risen dramatically during the last two decades just as the number of trans-identifying youth has increased by more than 4,000% over the same time period.”

According to a media report, as many as 300 new pediatric gender clinics have opened across the U.S. over the past few decades. “It’s a lot of money. These surgeries make a lot of money,” Burgos said.

“So a female-to-male chest reconstruction could bring in $40,000. A patient just on routine hormone treatment who I’m only seeing a few times a year can bring in several thousand dollars without requiring a lot of visits and labs. It actually makes money for the hospital,” he added.
