Medical Patient Modesty - a non-profit organization to improve patient modesty in medical settings


Find a Hospital With Female Surgeons

We have provided an online directory of hospitals where female cardiothoracic, orthopedic, and spine surgeons practice for women. Often during surgeries of the heart and lungs, women's breasts are exposed. As well, certain hip and spine surgeries might require exposure of the genitals unless special dignity garments are provided. Finding a female general surgeon—one who would operate on the gallbladder, appendix, etc.—are more readily available and are not listed in this directory. Sometimes doctors leave or move away so a doctor's availability could change. Also, we cannot guarantee you that the surgeons listed in this directory will agree with your wishes for modesty. You will need to consult with the surgeon and ask questions regarding modesty during surgery to determine if she is the right surgeon for you.

Patients undergoing hip surgery, cardiac catheterizations in the groin, cardiac bypass surgery as well as other surgeries that require access to the groin area are encouraged to check out the dignity garments which cover the genitals invented by an orthopedic surgeon at Covr Medical.

Female patients undergoing shoulder surgery can wear a special bra that would cover the breasts the whole time. Check out an example of a disposable bra, Modesty Bra that gives full access to your shoulder.

Check out Surgery and Your Modesty about steps you will need to take to ensure that your wishes for modesty during surgery are honored. Remember that a number of people potentially an anesthesiologist or nurse anestheist, circulating nurse, a number of nurses, and other medical professionals will be present for your surgery so you will need to talk to the hospital and your surgeon about your wishes for an all-same gender team.

If you see any outdated information or you would like for us to add a surgeon that is not yet in the directory, . This directory is a progress in work. Also, check out our female surgeon locator that allows you to search for surgeons based on miles.
