Frances Grimstad MD

Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecologist
Boston Children's Hospital

Frances Grimstad (she/her) is a Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School.

She has completed fellowships in Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology at Children's Mercy Hospital as well as Gender Affirming Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.

She engages in clinical and research work surrounding transgender and intersex reproductive health. She has been involved in trans health advocacy since her own adolescence, when she decided to pursue medicine to address disparities in care faced by these communities. Her interests center around optimizing reproductive health outcomes for both populations including hormonal and menstrual management, sexual health, surgical care, and family planning. Dr. Grimstad believes in using research and advocacy to dismantle clinical bias and bring more evidence-based care to gender- and sex-diverse patients.

At Boston Children’s she is the founder of the Transgender Reproductive Health Service and also the gynecologist in the Center for Gender Surgery and the Being-U clinic (the program for patients with intersex traits, or differences in sexual development).
