November hosts both Transgender Awareness Week and Transgender Day of Remembrance, and PRS Global Open is proud to support these events by highlighting articles published in our journal which focus on the health of transgender and nonbinary people.

PRS Global Open works to increase the health and safety of transgender and nonbinary patients by publishing the highest quality papers on the many aspects of gender affirming surgery. The articles selected reflect the impressive array of research on gender affirming care published in PRS Global Open since 2019. This compendium includes procedural considerations, technical innovations, complication management, as well as the dimensions of social healthcare relevant to the transgender community, such as insurance coverage and perceptions of gender affirmation. It is this synthesis of a surgeons’ expertise with the patient experience that elevates clinical care.

Gender affirming surgery is a dynamic and expanding field. While access to life-saving, life-affirming reconstructive surgery is only one aspect of the wellbeing of transgender and nonbinary populations, it is the area where the field of plastic surgery can most directly advocate for patients. PRS Global Open honors the transgender and nonbinary lives lost, and stands strong in its commitment to publishing articles which expand and improve the quality of gender affirming surgical care.
