about
Amanda Rosenfeldt

Founder. Manager

She is in charge of assisting patients with diverse aspects of the service that are not strictly medical or surgical, like the remote advising and exchange of information before the medical trip, the escorting and land transportation during the stay in Buenos Aires and the remote follow up of the recovery once the patients get back to their countries.

In 2001 she started to promote facial feminization surgery within the circles of Argentine plastic surgery, mostly conservative circles where this kind of surgeries were ignored and frowned upon. Since then she has not ceased to work on developing these practices and making them available to hundreds of people from her country and the whole world.
Since 2005 she has teamed up with different surgeons, with whom she collaborated in the development of new techniques and raised the quality of care to the highest standards. She was a ‚Äútrans patient‚ÄĚ herself for years and passed through many surgeries with analytic criteria, which gives her a unique understanding of each patient.
In T-Change she is in charge of assisting patients with diverse aspects of the service that are not strictly medical or surgical, like the remote advising and exchange of information before the medical trip, the escorting and land transportation during the stay in Buenos Aires and the remote follow up of the recovery once the patients get back to their countries.
