Dr. Perovic, Trans Surgeon, Dead at 72.

Dr. Sava Perovic, gender reassignment surgery pioneer, has died in Serbia. He was 72 years old.

According to Yahoo news:

Perovic, a respected urologist, began gender reassignment surgery in the 1980s in Belgrade and soon became a leading expert.

With his team, he performed a number of surgeries abroad, mostly in Asia, including urologic and genital corrective procedures.

Perovic died after a long illness, the reports said without giving details. His funeral would be held on Thursday in Belgrade.

I was not aware Dr. Perovic had battled a long illness; my thoughts go out to his family. Dr. Perovic drastically improved FTM lower surgery throughout his career and his death will be mourned in the trans community.
