Each client is a world unto themselves, presenting a wholly individual set of needs, goals and experiences that set them apart as completely unique. Because of this, every patient deserves the utmost personalized attention and resources, as well as an approach that is tailored expressly to their vision for success.

At Align Surgical, we believe that the patient’s natural anatomy and appearance should serve as a guide during transgender surgery, so results appear seamless and organic. Harmony is thus achieved by incorporating and integrating the patient’s existing anatomy, while simultaneously producing the changes that reflect their new gender identity.

Dr. Satterwhite and Dr. Gurjala Discuss their Partnership at Align Surgical

In order to fulfill this philosophy of customized care, Align Surgical believes the best way to satisfy our patients is to truly listen to them. This means an uncommon amount of time spent in consultation asking questions, reviewing photographs, meeting with family members, and creating a sense of security and trust before moving forward.
