"Best Practices: Mount Sinai’s Center For Transgender Medicine And Surgery" - Dr. Zoe Rodriguez and Dr. Joshua Safer
The Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai, open officially since 2016, offers a pioneering format for patients seeking help with or managed care related to transgender-specific medical and surgical interventions. Zoe Rodriguez, MD, vice chair of operations, medical director of ambulatory services in the department of obstetrics and gynecology for Mount Sinai Downtown and Joshua Safer, MD, executive director of the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai talks about how this extraordinary endeavor came about. “Although it’s very much still a work in progress, I’m especially proud to belong to an institution that is working so hard to do the right thing with regard to transgender medical care. The goal is not to limit ourselves to a defined clinic, but rather to integrate the center throughout the Mount Sinai system,” said Dr. Safer.
