Dr. Daniel Medalie

Over 20 Years Experience With Transgender Surgery

Dr. Daniel Medalie, MD is a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has been performing transgender surgery since 1996.

Based in the Cleveland area, Dr. Medalie offers Metoidioplasty surgery for trans men. More specifically, he performs the Simple Metoidioplasty or Simple Release procedure, which is a good option for those who do not require Vaginectomy or Urethroplasty. By releasing the hormonally enlarged clitoris from the hood and cutting the ligament that holds it under the pubic bone, the entire penile structure is freed of surrounding tissues. Additional length of up to 50% can be achieved. Scrotoplasty and Testicular Implants are optional. Additionally, a Mons Resection can be performed, which removes fat from the pubic mound to expose the penis more.

Dr. Medalie is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Ohio Valley Society of Plastic Surgery.

He operates almost exclusively at the Wright Surgery Center, and is also affiliated with University Hospitals of Cleveland.
