The Center for surgery center for FGM is a non-profit 501 C 3 corporation located in Atlanta, Georgia, and it was the only Center in the United States that is totally dedicated to victims of female genital mutilation.
We do both psychological and psychiatric counseling along with reconstruction surgery for those victims.
We’re currently seeing patients from all across the United States, and some are even coming from Africa for the surgery, some of being referred by the non-profit organizations that are advocates against FGM others are referred from the internet where they find us.
We’ve been seeing patients now for five years, and the results that we’re getting are very gratifying. We’re seeing people that were happy with their results, and their most common replied to us as “I feel whole again, and something that was taken from me had been restored,” and that certainly makes us happy when we hear this.
