Our pioneering clinic is a national leader in gender-affirming care and surgery and offers some procedures not available anywhere else in Iowa.
One place for all of your gender-affirming care
As you progress toward gender confirmation, you’ll need physicians, surgeons, pharmacists, mental health professionals, and other providers who specialize in working with transgender patients and who understand your goals and concerns.
Whether you’re just beginning to consider hormone therapy or you’re recovering from gender-affirming surgery, you’ll receive your care every step of the way from professionals who are trained to provide transgender medicine.
If you’re already on your path to gender confirmation, our team will work with you to review your medical history and create a treatment plan that will help you achieve your goals.
Your care team can include UI Health Care experts in these fields and others:
- Family medicine
- Internal medicine

- Plastic and reconstructive surgery
- Urology and reconstructive urologic surgery
- Mental health

When you need a provider outside of UI Health Care, we help you find a professional who will meet your needs.
