Dr. Jess Ting
A native New Yorker, Dr. Ting studied music at the Juilliard School, before switching careers to medicine. He attended medical school at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and graduated first in his class and Alpha Omega Alpha. This was followed by general surgery training at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center, plastic surgery training at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and a hand/microsurgery fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Dr. Ting led Mount Sinai’s first surgical genital reassignment surgery for the transgender population -- a male-to-female operation called vaginoplasty. The procedure was completed in March 2016 with other procedures quickly following, including: metoidioplasty for female-to-male genital transitions; phalloplasty; chest reconstruction surgery for transgender men.
To further provide comprehensive care to this underserved community, Mount Sinai established the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) - one of the first programs in the United States to offer broad, multispecialty transgender care in one location. To date, Dr. Ting’s team has performed more than 2,000 operations, making Mount Sinai not only one of the first institutions in the country to offer transgender surgeries, but now one of the busiest.
Dr. Ting performs research in transgender health and his clinical practice is limited to the surgical care of the transgender/gender non-conforming community, as well as victims of female genital mutilation.
Featured in the Gothamist, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter, Dr. Ting is the central figure in a documentary that highlights the trans experience and how he and his team at Mount Sinai are committed to enhancing lives through ground-breaking surgery and commitment.
