Host Michael Pauley is joined by Dr. Alfonso Oliva, a physician specializing in plastic and

reconstructive surgery, and a member of the Executive Board of the Catholic Medical

Association. Dr. Oliva and Michael discuss the various controversies surrounding the use of

drugs and surgeries as “treatment” for persons experiencing gender dysphoria. What are the

purported benefits of such procedures, and what are the known complications? Dr. Oliva shares

his thoughts concerning the rapid rise in cases of reported gender dysphoria among adolescent

females, and the growing trend of administering drugs and performing so-called “gender

reassignment” surgeries upon minors in the United States.
