Oct. 26, 2011 - PRLog -- April Wilks, an Ohio resident, traveled to Preecha Aesthetic Institute in Bangkok, Thailand for Sexual Reassignment Surgery (SRS). Satori World Medical’s Global Transgender Program™ coordinated Wilks’ care.

Satori’s Global Transgender Program™ provides individuals access to a high quality network of international hospitals and highly trained gender reassignment surgeons, at significant cost savings of up to 30-50% on surgical procedures compared with the U.S. The hospitals in Satori’s Global Transgender Program™ network were all selected following an extensive quality review by Satori’s Quality Assurance team, which included actual on-site due diligence visits by Satori’s Chief Medical Officer.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Preecha Tiewtranon, a world-renowned SRS and plastic surgeon with over 30 years of experience. Dr. Tiewtranon has performed over 3,600 cases of Male to Female SRS.

“I chose to get my procedure done through Satori’s Global Transgender Program™ to take advantage of going to one of the top SRS surgeons in the world, Dr. Preecha Tiewtranon”, said Wilks. “The care I received while in Thailand exceeded my greatest expectations. I know I received the highest quality of healthcare in the world.”

Dr. Tiewtranon is an accomplished surgeon who completed his surgery residency at New York Hospital and his plastic surgery residency in Albany Medical Center, New York and Victorian Plastic Surgery Unit, Melbourne, Australia. He is Board Certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in the United States, Australia and Thailand, a Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

“At Satori, one of our core pillars of excellence is to align ourselves with only the best of the best in healthcare,” said Kevin Poling, Director of Patient Services, Satori World Medical.  “Dr. Preecha is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading surgeons in his field.”

Another advantage of Satori’s Global Transgender Program™ is its team of Gender Transition Advocates (GTA). Each patient is assigned a GTA to guide the patient through every step from coordinating their care, transferring medical records, setting up a conference call with the patient’s international surgeon, scheduling the patient’s procedure, making hotel and air travel reservations and setting up their follow-up appointment with their U.S. physician upon their return.
“My Gender Transition Advocate (GTA) at Satori was amazing!” said Wilks. “I didn’t expect that level of work; he went far beyond my expectation. He stayed in contact with me the entire time I was in Thailand, and even kept in contact with my family to let them know how I was doing. Even though I decided to travel alone, I never felt alone with Satori.”

Satori’s Global Transgender Program™ has contracted with the top gender reassignment and feminization plastic surgeons around the world, such as Dr. Preecha in Bangkok, Thailand, Dr. Brassard in Montreal, Canada, and Dr. Beck in San Mateo, California. They have established working relationships with all their hospitals and surgeons and have negotiated and contracted procedures rates exclusive to Satori World Medical. Satori’s Global Transgender Program is proud to partner with Susan’s Place, Pink Essence and TransOhio.
