We are proud to invite you to our First Italian meeting on Transexual Tissue Translantation TTT.
The Meeting will take place in from 04th till 06th september 2019.


The congress will consist of three days and is oriented towards: Surgeons, Gynecologist, Urologist and Plastic surgeons.
Transgender individuals have gender identities that differ from sex recorded at birth. Surgery represents an early focus in the organized program planned to assist these patients although just some of them are looking for obtaining surgical procedures such as external genitalia removal and vaginoplasty or penile reconstruction or breast prostheses implant. Most of other subjects are seeking for non surgical transgender medical services, including hormone therapy, primary care and mental healthcare. The process of aligning physical characteristics with gender identity may also involve other aspects such as change in appearance (e.g.with clothing, make up and accessories) and do not involve the surgeon but other professionals such as psychiatrists, endocrinologists, sociologists. Due to these reasons gender disphoria has to be considered as a big challenge for future people communities.

Previous studies estimate that 0.6% of US adult population are transgender.
Europe Union seems to be in line with the same number of people. It means that about 4 million people in Europe is affected by gender disphoria and are waiting some help for adequate treatments.

Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria Pisana has been recently recognized as one of the most representative Italian centers dedicated to transgender surgery and has been appointed as the referral center on the topic in the mid-Italy area.
Due to these reasons we planned the meeting entitled “FROM GENDER DYSPHORIA TO SURGICAL CIRCULAR ECONOMY: AN EXPERT MEETING”. All aspects of gender disphoria will be discussed during the first day of the meeting while transgender surgery “live sessions” by the most recognized expert surgeons in the field will be performed during the following days. Moreover some interesting aspects regarding tissue recovery and banking will be also discussed in the meeting final session.

You are all invited to join this interesting event.
