Recruitment for New Surgeon

Efforts began immediately after notice of Dr. Sidhbh Gallagher’s departure to begin recruitment for surgeon that will continue supporting the full scope of gender affirming surgical care.

Recommendations relating to recruitment and/or leads for candidates interested can be sent to plastics@iuhealth.org. It will be responded to within 24 hours.

Scope of Surgical Services Provided Today

Gender affirming male-to-female and female-to-male top surgical care is being managed by our practice with considerable delays in processing due to this transition. We are leveraging both a waitlist and detailed criteria for consultation with a member of our faculty supporting these procedures. Criteria for consultation and resources to support the fulfillment of these criteria are available on the Referral Guide linked here.

Gender affirming male-to-female and female-to-male bottom surgical care is being routed to our partners with IU Health Physicians Urology. This team can be reached at 317.944.7338.

Non-Surgical Services Supported By Our Program and Practice

Although we cannot maintain the same scope of surgical care today, we would like to encourage patients seeking gender affirming care to seek the care of non-surgical providers in our area. A list of these resources can be found on this page.
