At Weiss Memorial Hospital
The Center for Gender Confirmation Surgery at Weiss Memorial Hospital is ready to help make transitions complete. We’re one of only a handful of centers in the country that offers a comprehensive approach to gender confirmation surgery. We invite you to discover how the expert, compassionate staff at Weiss works with people as they embark on a new beginning.
The Center for Gender Confirmation Surgery, led by medical director Loren S. Schechter, MD, FACS, offers the full spectrum of gender-confirming procedures consistent with the guidelines established by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).
Our top priority is to provide high-quality, compassionate care in a welcoming, patient-centered environment.
Our program coordinator helps patients throughout the process, including:
After surgery, patients recover on a dedicated post-surgical unit. Privacy and comfort are enhanced with large, private rooms providing beautiful views of Lake Michigan. An extra bed is also available in each room, allowing a visitor to stay with the patient.
An increasing number of insurance plans are offering coverage for gender confirmation surgery. Our program coordinator assists patients with the insurance precertification process.
Requirements for surgery depend on the procedure requested. Our program coordinator will assist with questions and arrange an in-person evaluation with our doctor. Request more information below or call us at (866) 362-6888.
