Transgender & Nonbinary Health
If you identify as transgender or nonbinary, chances are that you’ve walked into a doctor’s office, gotten a patient registration form and found that the only boxes to check are “male” or “female.” Worse, you may have experienced physicians unwilling to treat your specific health needs with the respect you deserve.
At UK HealthCare, we guarantee that will not happen to you. We know that “transgender” and “nonbinary” encompass a huge range of experiences — and an assortment of very different healthcare needs and considerations. Whether you’re just beginning to question your birth-assigned gender identity or you’ve been comfortably transgender for decades, we are here to listen and to ensure you get the most leading-edge care possible.

At the UK Women’s Health OB-GYN program, we offer services that specifically address the needs of our transgender, non-binary and other gender-non-conforming patients, whatever your sexual orientation or sex assigned at birth. Care options include:
- Gynecological care
