A 8 hour surgery is being conducted at the Lady Ridgway Hospital Colombo to change the sex of a 8 year old child, genetically female but born with male organs.
The Surgery started at 8.00 a.m today (24) and will continue until 5.00 p.m, Director of the hospital Dr.Ratnasiri Hewage said.
Three Sri Lankan specialist doctors and a team of foreign doctors are conducting the surgery.
Though the 8 year old child has male sex organs, the child is found to be genetically female. Dr. Hewage stated that following the surgery the child would be able to go to the society as an ordinary girl.
In Sri Lanka, nearly 500 children are born annually with sexual diformities, Dr. Hewage further added.
