Since the Center provides care to an international audience, we value our partners who provide invaluable assistance.
We are frequently made aware of the needs of local and foreign communities by these partners. As a global team of providers, we hope to treat those now with FGM and prevent others from ever being brutalized. We make every effort to accommodate their travel schedule and make available information regarding hotels and transportation while in Atlanta.
We realize that this is a very sensitive and personal issue. Cultural differences are recognized and honored throughout the treatment period. Patients are encouraged to ask questions, share difficulties and become comfortable with the surgeons and staff. We make every effort to honor special requests regarding care and staffing. And, as with any surgery, patients are always fully informed.
