Origins of Our Practice

Dr. Curtis Crane is a board certified plastic surgeon who has a very unique background: he is one of the world’s only physicians who has trained as both a plastic surgeon and reconstructive urologist. With this combination of specialties, Dr. Crane is uniquely qualified to treat patients requiring major genitourinary reconstruction, such as in female to male and male to female gender confirmation surgery. He completed a urology residency at Dartmouth, a fellowship in trauma and reconstructive urology at Detroit Receiving Hospital, and plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center. Dr. Crane traveled to Europe to complete a fellowship specific to gender surgery.He worked extensively with Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic multiple times in Belgrade, Serbia, with Dr. Preecha’s team in Bangkok, Thailand, and with Dr. Monstrey in Ghent, Belgium. Having enjoyed working with transgender patients all over the world, Dr. Crane has settled in San Francisco where he is continuing Dr. Brownstein’s 35 year practice.

Dr. Crane will continue Dr. Brownstein’s legacy by welcoming Thomas Satterwhite, M.D. to his practice. Dr. Satterwhite completed a craniofacial fellowship in Miami, FL under the tutelage of Dr. S. Anthony Wolfe, a world-renowned craniofacial surgeon. Dr. Thomas Satterwhite obtained his Bachelor’s Degree (Human Biology with Honors) and Medical Degree at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA. He remained at Stanford Hospital to complete his residency in Plastic Surgery, a highly regarded training program. Dr. Satterwhite’s addition to the practice solidifies our commitment to provide the best surgical options for the trans community.
