Did you catch us last week for our IG Live with Dr. Min Jun? Our cofounder, Elizabeth Akincilar, MSPT, went live with Dr. Min Jun, a genital gender-affirming surgeon.
In case you missed it, here is a little about Dr. Jun:
Dr. Min Jun trained at four different academic centers and completed his residency training in urology at Detroit Medical Center under the tutelage of Dr. Richard Santucci. He travelled to Serbia for additional transgender-focused training with Dr. Miroslav Djordjevic, and then completed a reconstructive and traumatic urology Fellowship at Temple University with Dr. Michael Metro. To further focus on gender-affirming surgery, Dr. Jun completed a Fellowship in gender affirming genital and robotic surgery at New York University with Dr. Lee Zhao and Dr. Rachel Bluebond-Langner. Dr. Jun offers robotic peritoneal flap vaginoplasty in both primary and re-do (e.g. vaginal stenosis) cases, and care for urethral complications.
Dr. Jun practices exclusively with the Crane Center for Transgender Surgery in Greenbrae, California. Dr. Jun is a member of WPATH. To book an appointment, or view the services that Dr. Jun offers, you can visit his website for more information.
Below are a few questions discussed in the live:
- Do you recommend we start seeing a pelvic floor PT prior to surgery?
- Is there a recovery period or specialist we need to see for follow up care?
- What’s the first appointment with Dr. Jun like?
- What’s the go-to info you give patients when you first meet them for surgery discussion?
- Can I get a vestibulectomy now and a phalloplasty later?
- What is the high level process like if someone is interested in this surgery?
