Thomas Satterwhite MD
About Provider

During Dr. Satterwhite’s craniofacial fellowship, he was humbled to realize his gift could be used to help those who have faced grave misfortune in their lives. He began working with adults and children who suffer from disfigurement and those who deal with devastating injury and facial anomalies. He honed his skill in refining the physical form and function of the human anatomy, while enlarging his heart in the process.

Dr. Satterwhite’s expertise lies in delivering all aspects of gender confirmation surgery for transmen, transwomen, non-binary, and gender expansive individuals. He performs top surgery and bottom surgery, completing highly intricate operations that give his patients a new outlook on life as they are finally in the body they were meant to be in all along.

In addition to providing consultations and services at their primary office in San Francisco, Dr. Satterwhite sees patients at MarinHealth Medical Center for various surgical procedures. Call our office to learn more.
