Dr. Curtis Crane
Dr. Curtis Crane is a reconstructive urologist and plastic surgeon who performs FTM metoidioplasty surgery in San Francisco, California. He is the only surgeon in the world who is trained as both a plastic surgeon and urologist and has completed fellowships in both reconstructive urology and transgender surgery. He has been performing FTM surgery since 2005, and has worked extensively with Drs. Monstrey and Hoebeke in Belgium, Dr. Miro in Serbia, and with Dr. Preecha in Thailand.
Dr. Crane performs metoidioplasty with or without urethral lengthening. He is proficient in five different types of metoidioplasty to best suit the patient’s anatomy. A metoidioplasty without extending the urethra is called a “Simple Release” or “Clitoral Release.” Vaginectomy and scrotoplasty are optional with a simple release. A full metoidioplasty with urethral lengthening, vaginectomy, scrotoplasty (with VY advancement) and placement of testicular prostheses is also available. If a larger scrotum is desired, tissue expanders can be used.
Dr. Crane's metoidioplasty technique has developed through his training with Dr. Miro and Dr. Hoebeke. He takes into consideration the size of the clitoral hood, urethral plate, labia minora and labia majora to provide the best aesthetic results possible.
The total cost of metoidioplasty with Dr. Crane includes anesthesia, facility fees, pathology and surgeon’s fee.
