The Surgery Center for FGM is the nation's first and only non-profit center for treatment of FGM. Our efforts are funded completely by donations and grants which allow us to provide our services at no cost to the patient.
We are a non-profit multi-disciplinary Center in the United States devoted solely to patients of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) or “female cutting”. Our services are free for all FGM victims.
We specialize in reversal of FGM by reconstructing the genitalia surgically. Our Center also offers psychological counselling and educational training for medical personnel.
Thankfully, there are many advocacy and policy groups working to prevent FGM of future victims, but there are not enough physicians and surgeons addressing the needs of those patients who have already been mutilated. Our Center addresses that need.
The Center's staff of physicians, surgeons, psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers determines the needs of the patient and facilitates the recapture of that which was taken - their physical and psychological integrity. In the rare event the patient's needs are beyond our capacity, we refer them to our professional partners that the Center has pre-approved.
