The Hospital Clínic, pioneer in Catalonia in voice surgery for transsexuals

The Hospital Clínic de Barcelona is the only hospital in Catalonia to have an active glottoplasty programme. Glottoplasty is a surgical procedure that allows transgender women to make their voice sound more feminine.   The programme is carried out at the Otorhinolaryngology Service's specialized voice consulting office by Dr. Isabel Vilaseca and Dr. Eduardo Lehrer (otolaryngologists) and the speech therapist, Marta Jordana. The Hospital Clínic is the only hospital in Catalonia to carry out this type of operation within the public health system.  

There is no age limit for voice feminization and each case is individualized.
