DR. CURTIS CRANE AND THE STAFF AT BROWNSTEIN & CRANE SURGICAL SERVICES HAVE BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT THE LENGTHY WAIT TIMES FOR SURGERY. WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING SOLUTIONS THAT WILL NOT COMPROMISE THE TECHNICAL EXPERTISE AND HIGH QUALITY CARE HIS CURRENT AND POTENTIAL PATIENTS EXPECT.
He has selected the most qualified surgeons to hire and train in surgical techniques he has perfected. While remaining actively involved in oversight and quality control of Brownstein & Crane Surgical Services, Dr. Crane has hired Dr. Mang Chen, a reconstructive urologist with over 3 years experience as an attending surgeon and 10 years experience performing urogenital surgeries. More than 150 procedures are scheduled for Dr. Chen and Dr. Crane to perform together as a surgical team. Dr. Chen will provide the same standard of care that Dr. Crane has established.
Additionally, Dr. Crane is opening a second practice in Austin, TX in 2016. He selected Austin for many reasons, including the vibrant LGBT community living there and the more convenient location for Midwest and East Coast patients. Dr. Crane will remain in constant communication with Dr. Chen and he will return to the bay area several times per quarter to see patients and operate.
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 courageous trans community.
Dr. Crane expresses his sincere gratitude for being voted Best FTM Bottom Surgeon in FTM Magazine’s Best of 2014. The constant support he receives from the transgender and gender non-conforming community continues to fuel his passion to provide the best surgical care possible.
Dr. Brownstein personally trained Dr. Crane in FTM top surgery. In addition to top surgery, the practice offers all surgical procedures for male to female, female to male and gender non-conforming patients. Dr. Satterwhite will be performing top surgery, vaginoplasty, and facial feminizing procedures. Dr. Chen will perform gender confirming bottom surgery as well as urethroplasties, fistula repair, and genital prosthetic surgery.
