Bay Area’s Align Surgical Associates Launches Los Angeles Practice for Patients Seeking Dedicated Gender-Affirming Surgery Experience

--News Direct--

The Bay Area-based gender-affirming care provider Align Surgical Associates (Align Surgical) announces the opening of its new office in Santa Monica, with surgeons specializing in gender-affirming facial, top and genital surgical procedures. Align Surgical is one of the few multi-disciplinary surgical practices in California that exclusively provides gender-affirming services.

Align Surgical’s Los Angeles practice will serve patients from across Southern California and beyond. The office and surgical center, located at 1317 Fifth Street, #303, Santa Monica, CA, 90401, are easily accessible by car or public transportation.

The surgeons at the Los Angeles office location include:

Michael H. Safir, MD. Dr. Safir is a dual fellowship-trained board-certified reconstructive urologist with subspecialty certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Safir specializes exclusively in gender-affirming genital surgery. He is one of the few urologists in the world with individual fellowship training and experience in both male and female genital reconstruction.

Paul Mittermiller, MD. Dr. Mittermiller is a craniofacial surgeon, specializing in facial gender-affirming surgical procedures.
