Ansu Kuswaha | Jainil Trivedi | Shivani Sheth


Abstract: The transgender community is a trivialised population in medicine which faces unwarranted challenges. This study was conducted to examine the awareness about pelvic floor rehabilitation post vaginoplasty among physiotherapy students, interns and clinicians. Women?s health is a part of the undergraduate syllabus of physiotherapy and yet only 20% of the respondents were aware regarding postoperative pelvic floor rehabilitation protocol post-vaginoplasty. Out of 100 participants screened only 18% were trained for care of the transgender community. This establishes the need to improve the quality of care provided to them, inculcation of vaginoplasty and its rehabilitation in academic curriculum of Physiotherapy, This is the need of the hour as the world is undergoing an inclusive transition from disparaging the transgender community to acknowledging and accepting them.
