At ECAPS, our mission is to provide a safe, respectful, and individualized approach to the surgical care of transgender and gender non-conforming patients. Our group of highly skilled and compassionate microsurgeons is dedicated to this patient population. Under the guidance of a world-recognized leader in transgender care, Dr. Jonathan Keith MD FACS, our team of health professionals unite in one goal of delivering superlative outcomes in gender-affirming surgery.
Patients who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria and have already socially transitioned are excellent candidates for gender affirmation procedures. We follow all guidelines from the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH). Ideal candidates for these surgical procedures are in good overall health since pre-existing physical health conditions can increase the chance of complications from surgery. Patients who are non-smokers or who are willing to quit tobacco use well in advance of their chosen procedure are good candidates for gender affirmation surgeries. Smoking has a negative effect on skin health and can lead to complications and a prolonged healing period.
We understand that undergoing gender-affirming surgery can be overwhelming. Our team at ECAPS will guide you through the process with ease. We will help to coordinate care with mental health providers and other specialists, if necessary. In addition, our skilled team will work directly with your insurance to organize coverage, when possible. We aim to build a relationship with you, working towards a mutual goal of delivering the utmost care in an efficient manner.
GENDER AFFIRMATION COST
The total cost of gender affirmation surgery is determined based on factors like your medical examinations, surgeon’s fees, hospital charges, post-surgery garments, and anesthesia. The exact techniques used will also impact cost, as will the total time needed to perform the surgery.

Review from J.B. | Source: Healthgrades | Feb 26, 2020
“I went to Dr. Chalfoun for a gender affirmation surgery. From the moment we met, I knew I was in capable hands. He never rushed any of my decisions, always took the extra time to answer questions (and sometimes calls and emails directly following surgery). He has been nothing but patient, caring and kind. He has gone above and beyond to make sure I have been well cared for and educated. I highly recommend him!”
