ISLAMABAD:

Two girls, both sisters, who underwent sex-reassignment surgeries have been discharged after recovering from the successful procedure.

Professor Dr Amjad Chaudhry at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) said that the two sisters, who hail from Gujrat and have seven other sisters, were born with physical deformities. He added that a medical examination had found that they suffered from atypical genitalia condition and that they had to undergo sex-reassignment surgery to change their gender and make them males.

After counselling the family, one sister underwent the procedure on September 9. A month later, the second sister went under the knife on October 9.

Dr Chaudhry said that the two were in healthy condition and after recovering, they were discharged. He added that their family was also happy after the operations.
