Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery

There is a growing, unmet need in the New York City metropolitan area for a multidisciplinary approach to health care for transgender individuals that incorporates primary care, transition care, and behavioral health in an affordable and accessible program. To meet this need, the Mount Sinai Health System’s Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery provides compassionate and comprehensive health care services for the transgender community. A team of professionals within the Mount Sinai Health System help patients in their journey from initial assessment and screening through hormonal therapy, surgical procedures, and post-transition care. Through a holistic approach, we refer patients to primary care and to specialists in the areas of endocrinology, behavioral health, plastic surgery, urology, and gynecology, working together to guide you through a successful transition.

We help our patients work with their health insurance to obtain necessary approvals for pre-surgical and surgical transitioning reimbursements.

Services

The Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery provides outpatient care services at Mount Sinai’s Institute for Advanced Medicine at 275 Seventh Avenue, and surgical services at various sites in the Mount Sinai Health System.

With our commitment to the highest levels of quality, we are bringing the most advanced transgender surgical procedures to the Mount Sinai Health System. In pursuit of excellence, Mount Sinai surgeons from the specialties of plastic surgery, urology, and gynecology are collaborating with international experts in transition surgery. Vaginoplasty surgery is performed by the Mount Sinai surgical team led by Jess Ting, MD with collaboration from renowned transgender surgeon Marci Bowers, MD, Professorial Lecturer at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Dr. Ting, and another expert, Miroslav Djordjevic, MD, of Belgrade, Serbia, perform metoidioplasty, a type of female-to-male genital surgery. An international expert team specializing in phalloplasty surgery will travel to Mount Sinai in the coming months. Mount Sinai surgeons also perform chest reconstruction surgery, known as “top surgery,” for transgender men and breast augmentation for transgender women. Learn more about our surgical offerings. Expert and holistic transgender care and surgical services are also provided by gynecologist Zoe Rodriguez, MD and urologist Aaron Grotas, MD.

Multidisciplinary Approach to Care

The Center for Transgender Surgery and Medicine’s multidisciplinary approach to health care for transgender individuals incorporates primary care, transition care, and behavioral health in an affordable and accessible program.

Prior to surgical scheduling, we review your case with our multidisciplinary team of medical professionals from Plastic Surgery, Urology, Gynecology, Behavioral Health, Social Work, Endocrinology, and Nursing.

Our team provides counseling regarding various options for patients who are interested in preservation of reproductive organs or storing sperm or eggs. Experts in electrolysis assist in pre-surgical preparation. We are committed to providing primary care and ongoing post-transition care.

In partnership with Mount Sinai Health System’s Center for Spirituality and Health, we connect patients with chaplains as appropriate.
