Jazz Jennings had a consultation with Dr. Christopher Salgado regarding her gender confirmation surgery on an episode of I Am Jazz. The reality star made the right call by going with a different physician, as Dr. Salgado has been terminated for unethical practices.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, a former patient slammed the twisted doctor for making transphobic comments and posting photos of patients’ dissected body parts online.
Dr. Salgado allegedly posted the disturbing comments and explicit images to what is believed to be his Instagram account @sexsurgeron, which has been taken down.
In one sick post obtained by Trans Advocate, he captioned a photo of a chopped up penis in the shape of a heart, “There are many ways to show your LOVE #whatisthat #whatislove #whatthef**k #sexoduro.”
In another disturbing post, he tagged “#eatingpu**y101" for a patient who needed jaw reconstruction surgery, the website claims.
He allegedly captioned a photo of a dildo being removed from a rectum, “could have been avoided if the transman had a real phalloplasty. #reald**ksmatter.”
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, one of Dr. Salgado’s former patients called him “Dr. Frankenstein.”
“Dr. Salgado destroyed a safe place for trans people to get the surgical support they need,” the patient told Radar. "We trust those doctors to improve our lives and this is what we get. He’s sick and twisted, he’s a disgrace.”
The University of Miami confirmed to Trans Advocate that Dr. Salgado “is no longer employed by the University of Miami.”
On the I Am Jazz episode, Jennings, 18, had a consultation with Dr. Salgado, who boasted about his 16 years in the field.
“Typically we use the penile skin inversion technique,” he explained during the consultation. “But I think it is going to be quite challenging with anyone who does your surgery to try to create a vaginal canal with what you have using your penile skin. I would recommend in your situation a colon vaginoplasty, which uses your intestine.”
