Serbia has become the place to be if you want to have sex reassignment surgery. Approximately 100 surgeries of this nature have taken place in the country within the past year and these numbers are expected to increase further due to Serbia’s recent insurance coverage of this procedure. One of the reasons why Serbia, of all places, has become popular for sex reassignment surgery is because several other countries look down on the transgender community and don’t pay enough attention to this issue.  In the United States, only five surgeons perform sex reassignment surgeries consistently. Furthermore, the price of the female to male procedure is $10,000 in Serbia as opposed to the U.S. where it costs $50,000 or more. Even Cher’s son, Chaz Bono is considering flying down to Belgrade, Serbia to get the penis attachment surgery done. “There’s a doctor in Belgrade that just does this procedure —he best of anywhere I’ve seen it.” [NYT]
