Transgender Health Care Services
The Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) takes a team approach to health care for transgender and non-binary people. All our patients have access to many health care professionals. Services include the following:
- Primary care, hormone therapy, and specialty care (such as endocrinology, gynecology, and urology)
- Surgical procedures
- Social work, spiritual care support, and complimentary legal assistance, if needed
- Behavioral health support
We work with the Adolescent Health Center to provide care for transgender and non-binary youth. We treat people ages eight and older at 275 7th Avenue in Chelsea. Parents of younger children please reach out to CTMSInfo@mountsinai.org for special assistance. The Adolescent Health Center treats young people (between ages 10 and 24) at 312 East 94th Street on the Upper East Side. Our adolescent program includes primary care, endocrine therapy, counseling, and family support.”
Ensuring Your Safety
At Mount Sinai, our doctors, nurses, and staff members are working diligently to ensure the health and safety of each patient who depends on us for care. Throughout our health system, we’re protecting our patients with rigorous protocols—from continuous cleaning and disinfection to screening for COVID-19. Your health and safety are our top priority.
Insurance and Access
Everyone should have access to medically necessary care. This is not always the case for transgender and non-binary individuals. At Mount Sinai, we can help you access health insurance and obtain any approvals you may need. This can include both hormone treatment and surgical intervention. CTMS accepts most major commercial and New York State Medicaid plans. We are happy to help you get authorizations for out-of-state plans.
