Gender confirmation surgeon lost job for sharing the pictures of his patients’ genitalia


Florida-based surgeon Dr. Christopher Salgado, who specializes in gender confirmation surgeries, was fired after being accused of publishing photos of his patients’ private parts on his social media accounts without their permission. The since-deleted @sexsurgeon Instagram account featured the surgeon’s name and his headshot and published a number of graphic pictures related to surgical procedures with numerous rude hashtags, in part containing homophobic, transphibic and racist slurs. A University of Miami Health System (UHealth) spokesperson told the Miami Herald on Wednesday (March 13) that Dr. Salgado was no longer working for them, but he denied being fired and stated that he just resigned and it was a decision of his own. News of his dismissal comes after a letter asking the American College of Surgeons and the Florida Medical Board to investigate the gender confirmation surgeon’s behavior was published online, open for signatures.
