Georges Burou (circa 1917–1987) was a Moroccan gynecologist who is widely credited with innovating modern sex reassignment surgery for transwomen.
Notable patients include Coccinelle, April Ashley, Amanda Lear, and Jan Morris.
Many surgeons, including the late Stanley Biber, have credited Burou's methods as the basis for their techniques.
