Dr. David Whitehead
Gender Surgery Fellow


As one of the first gender surgery fellows in the United States, I work closely with Dr. Loren Schechter, who helped author the 7th Edition of the WPATH Standards of Care, is a founding member and president-elect of the American Society of Gender Surgeons, and is Director of the Center for Gender Confirmation Surgery at Weiss Hospital in Chicago. My background is in general and plastic surgery, as well as hand surgery, and am currently board eligible in plastic surgery. My primary interest is in the surgical care of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
