Gender Reassignment Surgery
Mount Sinai’s Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) performs Male to Female and Female to Male surgeries.
Male to Female Surgical Offerings
Male to female chest reconstruction surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and includes implants and fat grafting. Male to female genital reconstruction includes penile inversion vaginoplasty through penectomy, orchiectomy, clitoral reconstruction, urethral reconstruction, and vaginal creation. These inpatient procedures are followed by an expected hospital stay of three days.
Female to Male Surgical Offerings
Chest reconstruction surgery for female to male transitions is performed by our team on an outpatient basis. Such surgical offerings include partial mastectomy, nipple/areola reconstruction, shaping of chest wall through periareolar incision and double incision with free nipple grafting. We perform metodioplasty for female to male genital transitions, including clitoroplasty, urethral extension, and testicular implants with 1-3 day inpatient stays.
Within the next several months, we plan to begin performing phalloplasty surgery. This will require a hospital stay of approximately six days. These surgical procedures include the creation of the phallus/urethra, hysterectomy, vaginectomy, testicular implants, and penile functional prosthesis. Phalloplasty surgery is a microvascular procedure that uses a radial forearm flap. Alternatively, it may involve either a microvascular free graft or a pedicled anterolateral thigh flap.
Preservation of female reproductive capacity is possible in certain circumstances.
