Surgeons offering both private and NHS services
You can find a complete list of UK surgeons who can be accessed via the NHS on the NGICNS website. Many of these surgeons will see patients “privately” also - that is, where the patient pays for the surgery themselves, rather than it being paid for by the NHS, including:
- chest surgery: The Harley Medical Group (Kate Williams and Chloë Wright), Andrew Fitton, Ioannis Ntanos, Victoria Rose, Phillip Rubin
- feminising lower surgery: Nuffield Health (Charles Coker and Tim Larner), and Parkside Hospital (James Bellringer and Tina Rashid)
Private-only surgery teams in the UK
A small number of UK surgeons offering gender surgeries will only take private patients. We are aware of the following surgery teams in the UK:
- multiple surgery types are performed by the London Transgender Clinic, The Hamlet Clinic, and Ardeshir Vahidi
- chest surgery is performed by Miles Berry and Dai Davies, Mohsen El Gammal, Mysore Chandrashekar, Guy Sterne
- feminising lower surgery is performed by Christian Seipp (including orchidectomy)
- facial surgery is performed by Nik Maini, Brian Musgrove, and Moorthy Halsnad
Surgery teams outside of the UK
There are many other private surgery teams based outside of the UK. You might want to have surgery abroad for many reasons, such as access to techniques not available from UK surgeons, lower cost of surgery in other countries, or wanting surgery from a specific surgeon who does not operate in the UK. However, there are a number of potential disadvantages to surgery abroad that are also worth considering carefully. There is information to help you make these decisions on the UK Government website and on the NHS website.
