Gender Affirmation Surgery
Our team at the Erie County Medical Center offers services for gender transition. The team includes specialists in Plastic Surgery, Urology, Gynecology, Psychology, and Speech Pathology who work together to provide both surgical procedures and support for our transgender patients. Our goal is a functional and aesthetically pleasing result, with the focus being on patient safety.
We strive to provide patients with the most up-to-date surgical techniques while following national guidelines for transgender surgery. Additionally, because surgery is only part of the process for patients undergoing gender transition, we also act as a portal to help our patients access mental health services, speech therapy, and hormone therapy. Patients who meet the preoperative requirements for surgery and wish to proceed can then be considered for male-to-female or female-to-male gender affirmation surgery.
