Our mission is to provide the best holistic therapy and surgery options for the transgender community.

This was the first time I have ever had surgery and I am beyond happy with the total experience. Dr.
This staff and surgeon were top notch. They treated me in such a friendly manner and really took the time to access my individual needs. I left there feeling like I was a part of their family and can not see myself going anywhere else for this procedure.
Oftentimes, Innovation is born out of necessity. The International Center for Transgender Care was created to fill a critical need in the transgender population – one center that provides advanced end-to-end therapy, surgery options and research for the transgender individual.
We understand that holistic therapy and support is just as important as surgery during the transitioning process, which is why we decided to dedicate a part of our center to fill this critical need. Led by Caroline Gibbs, a world-renowned therapist, advocate and supporter for the transgender population, we offer compassionate therapy and support for children, adults and teens.
Our Med Spa division offers the latest skin care services such as botox, fillers, clinical facials and laser hair removal from highly trained and skilled estheticians.
Our center includes an accredited and licensed 10,000 square foot surgery center with four fully equipped surgical suites dedicated to plastic surgery. Our surgeons have over 20 years experience with performing transwomen and transmen procedures using the latest and most advanced techniques.
A first in the nation, our clinical and basic research division is dedicated to advanced research to understand the etiologies behind transsexualism. We understand that there is a lot of misinformation in the transgender and public population, which is why our mission is to be the de facto source for clinical and peer reviewed transgender research and publications.
We encourage you to reach out to us if you have any questions or wish to schedule an appointment with our therapists or surgeons. Our staff is ready to respond to you in a timely and compassionate manner. Thank you for considering us to support and help you during your journey!
