Transgender Medicine

Our team stands ready to assist you in your transition. We pride ourselves on providing excellent medical care to all individuals, regardless of sex or gender. Through medicine, we hope to promote evidence-based care, education, research, equality and respect in transgender health.

We offer a multidisciplinary approach to your individual transition. Our goal is to alleviate gender dysphoria, and that may require a variety of services which differs from person to person. We aim to assist people who identify as transgender, transsexual, gender-variant, gender-nonconforming and gender questioning.

Becoming a patient

Please start by calling 913-588-2229.

To initiate hormones, our team requires a referral from a mental health professional as outlined in the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, or “WPATH” Standards of Care. We work closely with gender therapists in the area to provide continuity of care. Our physicians and staff can help direct you toward other resources as well, such as mental health, medical or surgical care and ancillary services such as electrolysis or speech therapy.
