dc.description.abstractMedical professionals recognize the Latin mantra Primum, non nocere, "First, do no harm," as the first principle of medicine. Yet, between one hundred and two hundred times a year in America, pediatric surgeons do harm when they surgically "correct" the ambiguous genitalia of intersexed infants. These surgeries, which I call "genital-normalizing surgeries," are unjustifiably performed on an emergency basis and supported only by questionable science.
