BORN TO BE

Three years ago, Dr. Jess Ting had never met a transgender person. Now he’s a leading gender reassignment surgeon in the U.S. This story chronicles the evolution of Dr. Ting’s uncharted medical procedures, alongside the emotional and physical metamorphoses of his patients, taking us beyond the stereotypes of trans experience, and into what it truly means to care for patients.
