CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago museum that chronicles the history of surgery is planning an exhibit on sex-reassignment procedures.
Collin Pressler is the International Museum of Surgical Science’s director of exhibitions. He tells the Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/2kKEroC ) that he hopes the museum can help “demystify” the “relatively obscure” topic.
Pressler says museum officials have seen the issue become a “flashpoint” in social, culture and political conversations and the museum hopes to be able to contribute to the discussion in medical and surgical terms.
