The Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) has experienced a high influx of clients seeking vaginoplasty, a surgical construction of the vulva and vagina.
Dr. Blair Peters, a surgeon leading the gender program at OHSU, boasts that the gender surgery clinic has performed the “highest volume” of sex changes on the West Coast. OHSU uses a high-tech robot to perform automated genital surgeries on patients, including children. The gender surgery clinic could perform two robot-assisted vaginoplasties in a single day.
The vaginoplasty robot, often called the “castration machine,” performs mutilation on the male’s genitalia to surgically install a fake vulva and vagina over the empty spot.

“Robotic surgery is a sophisticated way of doing surgery on the inside of the belly cavity without making a big incision. And that approach allows you to use tissue from the inside of the belly cavity to be part of the vagina,” an OHSU employee explained in a 2021 video on OHSU’s YouTube channel.
But genital surgeries are far from safe. A group of nine patients published a letter in 2018 complaining that they experienced physical injuries and sexual dysfunction after undergoing genital surgeries at OHSU.
Mutilated children often suffer from life-threatening complications
In May, a teenage transgender died from complications after opting to surgically replace his penis with a fake vagina. Prior to the death-inducing surgery, the boy was considered “healthy,” but his male genitals were abnormally undeveloped due to early use of drug-induced puberty suppression.
So at the time of the “conversion,” there was not enough penile tissue available for surgeons to use in creating a fake neo-vagina. As a result, surgeons decided to use the boy’s bowels for the reconstruction.
The supposedly life-changing event for the 18-year-old boy resulted in a cascade of life-threatening complications. The procedure took a fatal turn as his body succumbed to necrotizing fasciitis within 24 hours, despite intensive medical interventions. The body went into multiple organ failure after developing an E. coli infection from his waste-filled bowels.
Dr. Michael Biggs, a sociologist who has been vocal about these issues, highlighted the inherent risks involved in using intestinal tissue for such surgeries. “Opening up your intestines is obviously much riskier, and intestines are also messy,” Biggs explained.
The incident shows the serious downsides of the so-called “gender-affirming treatments.”
Even Peters acknowledged this risk of gender-affirming procedures in a video interview published by Manhattan Institute senior fellow Christopher Rufo. Peters stated that teenagers who have had their puberty medically suppressed may not have enough genital tissue to develop a neo-vagina if they undergo vaginoplasty in their late teens. They might also find it difficult to get used to the daily vaginal dilation required as long-term post-operative care due to a lack of sexual experience.
