Marin General offering gender reassignment surgery
North Bay Business Journal

Marin General Hospital has begun offering gender reassignment surgery, and recently named plastic and reconstructive surgeon Thomas Satterwhite, M.D., to the hospital’s medical staff. It is the only major hospital in the North Bay to support physicians’ offices that perform these procedures. Satterwhite, a plastic surgeon at Brownstein & Crane Surgical Services in San Francisco, is currently working closely with the nursing staff and administration at MGH to develop a comprehensive program for these specialized surgical procedures, specifically male-to-female transitions. Satterwhite and the team performed Marin General’s first reconstructive vaginoplasty in September.
