Most plastic surgeons performing urethral lengthening on trans patients use the assistance of a general urologist. Not only is Dr. Crane trained in urology in addition to plastic surgery, but he also completed a fellowship in reconstructive urology with Dr. Richard Santucci. Reconstructive urology fellowships specifically focus on surgery of the urethra and urethral stricture disease, which is a known complication of urethral lengthening procedures.
Dr. Crane has also been trained in vaginectomy procedures, which can be done at the same time as urethral lengthening.
