“I really enjoyed my pre-op appointment with Dr. Crane. It’s clear he has a great interest in progressing all aspects of the trans community in addition to me as a patient.”
“Dr. Crane made me feel very comfortable. I think a few of his strengths are how personable he is and his ability to listen. He explained every surgical option in as much detail as I asked until I understood exactly what he was talking about.”
“It’s so refreshing to find a doctor that is so passionate about what he does. I was impressed that he could have started working 4 years before he did, but chose to continue learning in further fellowships to give his patients the best care possible.”
“The problem I have with going to the doctor is that they are self important and interrupt when the patient is talking. I couldn’t believe he didn’t interrupt me once! He listens instead of talking over me!”

Gender Surgery in San Francisco

Congratulations to Brownstein & Crane surgical services! In May 2018 we completed our 400th phalloplasty.

We continue to boast some of the lowest published phalloplasty complication rates in the world and our San Francisco microsurgeons that we have been working with for more than a year and a half have 0 microvascular take backs and 0 flap failures. Between our two centers in San Francisco, California and Austin, Texas, we perform 5-6 phalloplasties per week, making us one of the largest volume centers in the world.

Dr. Crane was featured in Bloomberg News and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Crane has opened a second practice in Austin, TX. He selected Austin for many reasons, including the vibrant LGBT community living there and the more convenient location for Midwest and East Coast patients. It is our strong belief at Brownstein & Crane that more access to high-quality surgical care across the country will not only decrease surgical wait times, but also strengthen the understanding, support, and acceptance of the medical, political, and social movements for the trans community.


Dr. Crane expresses his sincere gratitude for being voted Best FTM Bottom Surgeon in FTM Magazine’s Best of 2014.
