Our Team

As of December 2021, the Johns Hopkins Center for Transgender Health has resumed performing top surgeries — mastectomy and breast augmentation — by plastic and reconstructive surgeon Steven Ovadia. New patients interested in consultation for top surgery can call 844-546-5645 toll free to schedule a clinical intake screening and start the process. We thank you for your continued patience and support as we offer limited surgical services while we search for a new medical director. Please check our website regularly for updates.  Learn more
