I'll add that - to my knowledge - no UK surgeon currently offer peritoneal GRS if that's what you are seeking?

I Think that there is a doctor in Spokane, Washington that does revisions using the the PI technique.  There was a thread here not to long ago about the doctor.  Do a search and you may find his name and website or other contact info.  Good luck.

The doctor in Spokane is likely Geoffrey Stiller at Stiller Aesthetics. I don't know all the techniques he uses, but it is more than two...

I know the urologist who was in with the urology chair on these surgeries has intentions of being available to continue these at IU Health. But they still need a plastic surgeon who can take over Dr Gallagher's place there.

For those who want to know depth is about 7inches still. There is still more than enough moisture secretions. It seems the deeper parts may not have epthilized yet.

I am very happy with my results. I am healing up well from my revision done in early March.

Dr. Stiller is in Spokane.  He does the traditional inversion and a colon technique.  As of a few months ago he was not offering PVP.  His aesthetics results are amazing.  If he offered PVP I would seriously be interested.

I have heard this same thing a few times. But his website does not have pictures. I have not done an extensive search for pictures, but... How do you know his results are aesthetically amazing?

Thank you!

Well hopefully Dr. Gallagher finds a urologist or IU finds a plastic surgeon so this procedure can start taking place again soon.

He does have photos.  They are under the body procedure tab of his website.  I have also heard lots of first hand reports.

I have heard several times about Stiller's great aesthetics, but always wondered what the proof might be.

That said, based on all this hearesay, and really enjoying his in-person demeanor, I have scheduled 22 May with him. I do hope he is as good as everyone says...  ;D

I just wanted to share that I also had ppt at IU Health, less than a week post surgery right now. Dr Koch is still doing the robotic part within the abdomin and Dr Roth did the grs. Lol, with all the *plasty parts of the surgery I was just calling them all my multiplasties. The perionteal tissue was used to completely line my vagina.  Everyone I met during my week long stay was very nice.

Hi Kara,

Thank you very much for sharing.  I would very much like to have the peritoneal procedure done as well.  Is Dr. Roth's first name Joshua?  Was it his office you initially contacted to schedule surgery?  I do appreciate any information you can provide.  Thanks again.

I believe Dr. Roth first name was Joshua. He was the second urologist in on my surgery. Dr. Gallagher had said he was going to e part of the program.

I'm happy to hear that IU Health is still doing the PPV there. When I was there almost a year ago now, the hospital staff was all wonderful.

Yes, that's his name. My primary care doctor referred me. Also, I think I was one of the last people to use IU Healths website tor their trans surgeries just before Dr Gallagher left. I would guess contacting them directly to find out their current procedures would be best.  I was trying to see them during their transition time between surgeons.

Like josie76 said, everyone there was very nice. The nurses and techs were all very patient with me and my slow gitupandgo :)

Josie and Kara, Thank you very much for your response.  I will call them tomorrow.  If there is any updated information regarding scheduling or anything related to surgery I will post it here.  Take care.


Hugs,

If anyone knows a good way to reach this team, can you please let me know?
I have been trying to contact IU.  The website says they have no surgeon yet, and the voice messages still say Dr Gallagher.  I left messages for nurse Tara (not certain right name) which was the only voicemail box I found.  The submission forms to request entering their program require the surgery codes from the surgery team up front, so you can't fill the entry forms out without getting that info from someone there.
Been following this thread from day one.
Thank you so much.

I am interested in  peritoneal vaginoplasty procedure, its a ways off for me, but all my research suggests this method is well uh a bit more natural and you have to have less maintenance during the long term aftercare, I live in the US and my insurance does claim they cover GRS GAS surgeries and didn't specify exactly a specific method and with that said while I am saving up could anyone provide me info on some doctors in the US who would perform this particular vaginoplasty vs the penile inversion (alone) idk if they are combined or what just know about less dialiation and more self lubricating and the uh texture is that of a cis-female. To me that seems like the right choice

Assuming UI continues, that seems to be an option, the other two surgeons I'm aware of performing PPTV in the US are Bluebond-Langer in NYC and Wittenberg in SF. If you want details on my procedure with the latter (revision), pm me for a link.

I remain concerned about surgeons who enter into this work without adequate training. A group of concerned trans folk wrote an open letter to WPATH about this, seeking standards for training. For my part, I rejected the only local surgeon performing GCS for my primary vaginoplasty precisely for this reason, his training had consisted of observing only 3 procedures.

Now, surely, everyone starts somewhere, especially those who develop new techniques, that's not the same to me as beginning in a new specialty with minimal practice, I would be even moreso with respect to anyone undertaking something as complex as pptv without adequate preparation.
