Gender Affirmation Surgery

UNC Urology is a regional leader in transgender care. We offer a full range of urologic services including primary gender affirming surgery (including metoidioplasty, phalloplasty, and vaginoplasty), penile prosthesis, and orchiectomy. We also specialize in the management of complications from gender affirmation, such as strictures and fistulas. In July 2019, the Department of Urology launched the UNC Transgender Health Program in order to improve access to UNC Healthcare for transgender patients in the region.

IMPORTANT NOTICE (3/15/2021):

Our most central goal at THP is to continue to provide the best gender-affirming care possible and ensure all our patients get what they deserve. To balance the needs of both our new and existing patients as we work to restructure and incorporate new supportive resources, we are temporarily pausing the intake of new patients into the Transgender Health Program. As of Monday, 3/15/2021, all new patients will be placed on a waitlist. We will use this waitlist to track all new patients and their needs. As we catch up with care navigation for existing patients and incorporate additional support resources, we will slowly add new patients to the program on a first-come, first-serve basis from this waitlist.

You can add your name to our waitlist at bit.ly/thpwaitlist.

Please also see our full statement regarding this change here.
