FTM Top Surgery in New York

Not too long ago, it was difficult to find a surgeon in New York to do Top Surgery—especially outside of New York City—and many trans men traveled out of state to access surgery. However, the 2016 launch of transgender surgery programs at both NYU and Mount Sinai, coupled with a marked expansion in private practices doing transgender surgeries in-state, have resulted in a plethora of surgeon options rivalling popular Top Surgery destinations like California and Florida.

New York Medicaid covers Top Surgery and while finding a surgeon who takes Medicaid can be a challenge there are a number who do: Dr. Kathy Rumer is located in Pennsylvania but is an approved out-of-state provider for New York Medicaid; Dr. Rachel Bluebond-Langner and Dr. Alexes Hazen at NYU; Dr. Jose Christiano; Dr. Thom Loree; Dr. Jess Ting at Mount Sinai; and Dr. Paul Weiss will all accept New York Medicaid. How to proceed with Medicaid »

Medicare: If you need a surgeon in New York who takes Medicare, contact NYU's Transgender Surgery Services at 212-263-3030.
