Study recommends that parents, physicians share decisions in sex development disorder surgery
Date:7/23/2010

family may perceive the circumstance and their child. If the problem is defined as "abnormal genitals," the response may be different from "challenges of growing up with an atypical body." The discussion, therefore, should shift the discussion away from the choice of whether or not to have surgery to "how do we best address the concerns we've identified?"
  • Identify options and present evidence in an objective fashion presenting the potential choices and the evidence associated with the choices available. Providers should strive for objectivity, conveying what the team believes is the best course of action and why it is supported by evidence.
  • Shared responsibility for making a decision is facilitated by using the six-step process. Parents should have received unbiased information and emotional support to help them make sound choices. The health-care team will have gained insight into the parents' priorities and the family's circumstances, hopefully leading to a consensus based on trust and understanding.
