A Nebraska woman who underwent a sex-change surgery at the age of 16 is suing the medical practitioners who cut off her breasts, left her in a constant state of pain, and likely rendered her infertile.
complaint, filed Wednesday in the District Court of Douglas County, Nebraska, accuses University of Nebraska Medical Center and UNMC medical practitioners Dr. Jean Amoura, Dr. Perry Johnson, Dr. Stephan Barrientos, and therapist Megan Smith-Sallan of malpractice, alleging their “misleading descriptions and false claims” pertaining to sex-change mutilations were in violation of the state’s Consumer Protection Act.
The lawsuit contends that Hein, put “on the fast track” for mastectomies at 15 years of age, ultimately had her breasts removed “when she was not old enough to understand the ramifications thereof or consent thereto” and after her “parents had been manipulated into consenting.”
Prior to her delusion-affirming treatments, Luka was reportedly having suicidal thoughts and harming herself. To further compound her anxiety and confusion, Luka indicated her parents were getting a divorce and she had been “groomed online and preyed upon by an older man out of state.”
According to Hein’s complaint, inside an hour into her first therapy session at the UNMC Gender Clinic, her therapist “diagnosed Luka with gender identity disorder and began steering her toward transgender medical treatment with Defendant Amoura at the gender clinic.”
The suit blasts UNMC and those who savaged Hein’s body not only for “using surgical means to treat a mental health disorder” but for failing to “wait and see if Luka’s gender dysphoria would resolve with time”; “to develop a different diagnosis”; “to warn Luka that the mental health of patients does not improve with surgery”; “to obtain a proper pre-operative mental health evaluation”; and/or “question Luka’s self-diagnosis of trans-identification before amputating her breasts.”
Harmeet Dhillon, the founder and CEO of the Center for American Liberty, is representing Hein in the case. Dhillon has previously represented other victims of gender ideology, including
de-transitioner Chloe Cole.
told the Daily Mail, “Coercive methods were used to coerce the family into agreeing to it, such as a false representation about the mental health fallout from not doing it. ‘Your daughter will commit suicide if you don’t agree to this,’ was communicated to her parents.”
“Doctors should not behave to vulnerable children or families in this manner, period. Doctors should not be mutilating and permanently disfiguring children, period, without some medical necessity, which did not present itself in this case,” added Dhillon.

noted, “No child should have to go through the irreversible trauma that UNMC doctors put Luka through. And if she wins her lawsuit, perhaps no child will.”
Hein, originally from Minnesota, told the Daily Mail, “I was going through the darkest and most chaotic time in my life, and instead of being given the help I needed, these doctors affirmed that chaos into reality.”
“I don’t think kids can ever consent to having essentially full bodily functions taken away at a young age before they even know what that means,” continued Hein, who is also bringing a $2,250,000
tort claim against the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska. “I was talked into medical intervention that I could not fully understand the long-term impacts and consequences of.”
Besides the scars on her chest, the suit notes that the testosterone treatments Hein was subjected to over the course of four years “caused the disruption of her endocrine system, heart damage, deepening of her voice, pain in her vocal cords, joints, lumbar spine, hands, wrists, elbows, and pelvic area, as well as permanent dysregulation of her reproductive organs.”
Hein is one of a growing number of victims to take legal action against the medical professionals and institutions who hacked away various parts of their bodies to remedy feelings of body dysphoria.
reported in March that Layla Jane took action against the Kaiser Permanente hospital system, which began giving her puberty blockers at the age of 12 and amputated her healthy breasts the next year.
filed a suit against the Permanente Medical Group, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals who performed, supervised, and/or advised transgender hormone therapy and surgical intervention on her between the ages of 13 and 16.
