A spokesperson for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust said:
"The allegations levelled at Great Ormond Street Hospital by the BBC have not been substantiated to us. Moreover, their story focuses around a case study that is 28 years old and the treatment he received is not consistent with today's practice.
"We do not do gender reassignment surgery at GOSH and the CQC is not investigating us as a result of these allegations.
"The story refers to an area of medicine that is complex and constantly evolving, and many of the most complex cases of DSD or intersex are referred to GOSH.
"We take very seriously any allegations that we are failing in our duty of care to our patients. All procedures carried out by GOSH are commissioned by NHS England and adhere to relevant guidelines on surgical procedures."
