Jess Ting, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at the Mount Sinai Health System. 

A native New Yorker, Dr. Ting received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Juilliard School of Music. He went on to attend medical school at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He received his general surgery training at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. He then completed specialized training in plastic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and a fellowship in hand surgery and microsurgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

Most recently, Dr. Ting led Mount Sinai’s first surgical procedure for the transgender population -- a male-to-female genital reconstruction called vaginoplasty. The procedure was completed in 2016 with other procedures quickly following, including: metoidioplasty for female-to-male genital transitions; chest reconstruction surgery for transgender men; and breast augmentation for transgender women, known as “top surgery.”

Following Dr. Ting’s pioneering techniques, Mount Sinai became the first institution in New York City to offer genital reassignment surgery. To further provide comprehensive care to this once marginalized community, Mount Sinai established the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) - one of the first programs in the United States to offer broad, multispecialty transgender care in one location. To date, Dr. Ting’s team has performed more than 400 operations, making Mount Sinai not only one of the first institutions in the country to offer transgender surgeries, but now one of the busiest.

Dr. Ting performs research in the areas of peripheral nerve regeneration and facial nerve reanimation. His clinical interests are plastic surgery and transgender surgery.
