Georges Burou (circa 19171987) was a Moroccan gynecologist who is widely credited with innovating modern sex reassignment surgery for transwomen.[1]

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.[2]
