Hi Katelyndoll,

I live very close to KY, (about 30 mins. from Louisville) but I don't know of any SRS surgeons. But that doesn't mean much, because I haven't look for any though. I have heard of a female surgeon up in Indianapolis, so I know there are some in the area. I have no idea how good she is though.

I'm going to assume that you're MTF because of your name. Am I correct about that? Have you done any Google searches for surgeons in the area? You can check the WPATH website and start your search there. There's a provider search that often has good results. But I'll warn you their site isn't totally current.

When I was looking for a gender therapist the WPATH site only listed one in Louisville, when in actuality there are a bunch of them. But it's still a good place to start. If you don't mind me asking how close are you to the Louisville area?

Hi Katelyndoll,

Ok I did some really quick searches and there are quite a few surgeons in Kentucky. I'm not allowed to post links yet, but I found an excellent search site you should check out. It's Trans Health Care .org

You can do a search by state, and the procedure too. Most of the surgeons are in either Louisville or Lexington, but I did see one in Owensboro too.

Hope this helps,

xoxo

P.S. I forgot this on my last post but...Welcome to Susan's Place. Whenever you have any questions the ladies here can usually come up with an answer.

I corrected myself on the MTF mistake right before you posted. My fingers sometimes type things my mind isn't thinking, lol. Sorry about that!

But check out that last post I made. The trans health care site seems A LOT better than the WPATH one.

Hi again Katelyndoll,

I thought I'd tell you a bit about myself. I'm 50 and pre-everything right now. I will be starting HRT on July 10th however so I'm getting really excited. I'm not out publicly yet, but I'm preparing to start telling a few select family members next week. I'm pretty nervous about it. I'm going to tell my mom first. I can't do it face to face because I'd just get too emotional, so I sat down and wrote her a 12 page letter, lol. The only people I've told face to face are my therapist and my doctor.

Anyway it's nice to know that there's another Susan's member kind of close to me. Good luck on your search. I hope you're able to find a good surgeon on that site.

xoxo

I would start by inquiring with your insurance carrier about which surgeons are in their network and how much, if any, of the surgery is covered with each one. This will help you focus your search.
