Daily Caller co-founder and Fox News host Tucker Carlson highlighted Tuesday a physician from Vanderbilt University Medical Center admitting to the profitability of gender reassignment surgeries for children.
“If you were a muckraking reporter with a conscience, that would be a story of a lifetime,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “It’s all there on tape. A doctor admitting they’re mutilating the genitals of children for money. Naming the dollar amounts. How could you pass that up? Everyone passed it up.”

Tucker played a 2018 clip of physician Dr. Shayne Taylor from the Nashville-based hospital sharing profit details.
“These surgeries make a lot of money,” Dr. Taylor says in the video, elaborating that female-to-male chest reconstruction could “bring in $40,000.” She further explained that a patient on hormone treatment who visits the hospital only a few times a year could bring in several thousand dollars.
“It actually makes money for the hospital,” she added.
“Vanderbilt opened its trans clinic in 2018,” Walsh wrote. “During a lecture the same year, Dr. Shayne Taylor explained how she convinced Nashville to get into the gender transition game. She emphasized that it’s a ‘big money maker,’ especially because the surgeries require a lot of ‘follow ups.’”
