Align Surgical Associates Welcomes Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon to Burgeoning Gender-Affirming Healthcare Practice

Align Surgical Associates

The California-based gender-affirming healthcare provider Align Surgical Associates Inc. (Align Surgical) announced today that Breanna Y. Jedrzejewski, M.D., M.P.H., has joined its practice. Align Surgical is one of the few interdisciplinary surgical practices in the United States that exclusively provides comprehensive gender-affirming care. “Breanna is a tremendous addition to Align Surgical’s roster of gender-affirming surgeons,” said Align Surgical founder Dr. Thomas Satterwhite. “She brings a breadth of experience, intelligence and compassion to her work and enables us to offer our patients a wider range of practitioners to choose from.” Breanna Y. Jedrzejewski, M.D., M.P.H, is a reconstructive plastic surgeon, specializing in gender-affirming surgical procedures for the face, body, chest or “top” and genital or “bottom” areas. Dr. Jedrzejewski received her M.D. from Brown University and holds a Master of Public Health in Global Health from Yale University. She completed her residency in integrated plastic surgery at Oregon Health and Science University, where her training included a high volume and full breadth of gender-affirming surgeries. Dr. Jedrzejewski is based at Align Surgical’s San Francisco office, serving patients from California and across the United States. Recently, Dr. Jedrzejewski was lead author on “Regret After Gender-Affirming Surgery: A Multidisciplinary Approach to a Multifaceted Patient Experience,” published in the July 2023 issue of Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. In the study’s cohort of 1,989 patients, only 0.3% requested reversal surgery or transitioned back to their sex assigned at birth. This finding of an extremely low rate of regret is below the 1.0% rate found in a 2021 review of 27 studies that examined rates of regret following gender-affirming surgeries. It is also significantly lower than rates of regret reported for other common surgeries, such as total knee replacement ( 10%), hip replacement (3%) and numerous cosmetic procedures such as rhinoplasty (9%), breast augmentation (3%) and liposuction (13%), as reported by Statista. Dr. Jedrzejewski’s research also identified that providing a care environment that “welcomes and normalizes authentic expression of gender identity, affirms surgical goals without judgment, and destigmatizes the role of mental health in the surgical process [is] foundational to mitigating the occurrence of any form of regret.” “I am thrilled to have found a practice that is as committed to providing a respectful and safe environment for patients as it is to advancing the field of gender-affirming healthcare through ongoing research,” said Dr. Jedrzejewski. “From the beginning, it was clear to me that Align Surgical shares my approach to the practice of medicine, which is to engage with each patient as a whole and unique person.” Align Surgical’s Commitment to Research and Surgical Innovations Align Surgical is distinguished among private surgical practices in having a foundational commitment to research and training, which typically only occur at large teaching hospitals. Its surgeons actively initiate and participate in ongoing research with academic and peer organizations, such as Stanford University Medical Center and World Professional Association for Transgender Health ( WPATH ), to improve outcomes and advance the field of gender-affirming healthcare. Align Surgical is an official rotation site for Stanford’s plastic surgery residents as they receive training in gender-affirming care. Align Surgical is also one of the only private interdisciplinary surgical practices in the United States that is 100% focused on gender-affirming surgery. While the majority of its patients reside in California, nearly 30% of Align Surgical’s patient base comes to the practice from 48 other states and outside the U.S. Initial consultations are tailored to every individual, whether they are transgender, nonbinary or gender-diverse. Align Surgical’s roster of plastic surgeons and reconstructive urologists offer the full array of gender-affirming procedures, including facial feminization and masculinization; chest or “top” surgeries such as mastectomy or breast augmentation; body contouring; and many forms of genital or “bottom” surgery, such as phalloplasty, metoidioplasty, vaginoplasty and more. Since founding the practice, the surgeons at Align Surgical have been at the forefront of developments in surgical technique and practices to improve patient outcomes. Whether it is addressing patient-focused needs such as finding a better solution for post-vaginoplasty dilation; questioning existing and pervasive practices such as withholding hormone therapy prior to surgery; or examining access to care by studying what operations surgeons in the U.S. are willing to perform for patients, the surgeons at Align Surgical are always seeking to contribute to the body of scientific knowledge. Their priority is always to improve patient outcomes and deliver the best care possible. “The field of gender-affirming healthcare – and surgery specifically – is one of the great new frontiers of medicine,” added Dr. Satterwhite. “As societal acceptance of transgender identities grows, our ability to expand access and improve outcomes for patients grows along with it. This is why I went into medicine: to deliver life-saving and life-affirming care to those who need it most.” * * * About Align Surgical Associates Align Surgical Associates was founded in 2018 with the mission of providing gender-affirming surgery to the transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse community with excellence, compassion and the belief that all people deserve to experience the freedom of living as their true selves. Align Surgical’s surgeons in San Francisco and Los Angeles provide the full range of facial, body contouring, top and bottom surgeries and share a commitment to advancing innovation and research in their specialty fields.

50-Provider FQHC Significantly Reduces Patient No-Show Rate by Implementing healow No-Show Prediction AI Model


Total Health Care, Inc., a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Baltimore, Maryland, is successfully leveraging the healow ® no-show prediction AI model to improve patient care, reduce missed appointments, and ultimately increase revenue outcomes. Total Health Care provides primary care — including dental, behavioral health, podiatry, pharmacy services, and more — to nearly 30,000 patients throughout Metropolitan Baltimore, many of whom are at or below the 200% poverty line. By identifying which patients are at a higher risk of missing appointments, Total Health Care can proactively reach out to those patients to remind them of or reschedule their appointments. Missed appointments are a significant challenge for healthcare providers, leading to lost revenue and result in negative health outcomes for patients. With the healow no-show prediction AI model, Total Health Care has reported: A significant decrease in the no-show rate of high-risk no-show patients by 34% An additional 309 appointments in 45 days from reduced no-shows “Missed appointments are a significant challenge to overcome. When the pandemic hit, digitization and optimizing systems became a priority for our organization,” said Marceé J.

It provides us with an opportunity to increase our patient volume, deliver quality care, and improve efficiencies for the staff.” Using AI and machine learning, the healow no-show prediction model can help practices identify patients with a high no-show probability with 90% accuracy. Once patients with a high no-show probability are identified, practices can utilize eClinicalMessenger to manage outreach efforts with voice messages, secure text messages, and email reminders. With healow Open Access ®, practices can publish open, cancelled, and last-minute rescheduled appointment slots on the practice website to avoid revenue loss, acquire new patients, and limit their waitlist. Using healow CHECK-IN ™ and healow Payment Services ™ makes the pre-visit process convenient and efficient, further reducing the rate of no-shows. These contactless solutions allow patients to check in to their appointment and pay their copay from the comfort of home. “We are excited to see Total Health Care implement the healow no-show prediction AI model to improve its overall impact on patient care,” said Girish Navani, CEO and cofounder of eClinicalWorks. “We strive to deliver FQHC’s like Total Health Care the highest quality of care to their patients and community. The introduction of the no-show model will ultimately reduce the cost of healthcare and encourage better patient outcomes."

The Cultivated B Initiated Pre-Submission Process towards EFSA Certification for Cultivated Sausage

The Cultivated B

The Cultivated B (TCB) began discussions with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and officially entered the pre-submission proces s for novel food approval of a novel or non-farmed sausage product. Subsequent to the official submission, TCB will emerge as world’s first biotech company to apply for EFSA certification for cultivated meat. This is a pivotal first step in the evolution of the cultivated meat market and establishes a viable path towards large-scale commercial production. “EFSA's Novel Food regulatory approvals process is among the most robust in the world, including a thorough and evidence-based assessment of food safety and nutritional value. For cultivated meat to become available in Europe, where this food was born, would mark a paradigm shift for the sector,” said Seth Roberts, policy manager at the Good Food Institute Europe. One of the most significant challenges in the cultivated meat sector is achieving production at the enormous volumes required by the food producer industry. In addition, food safety concerns and regulatory compliance further hinder cultivated meat from reaching consumers. TCB's early engagement with EFSA is a testament to knocking down these barriers, propelling the industry to democratize cultivated meat for the masses without compromising on quality or sustainability. "This is more than just a certification process; it’s a testament to our advanced, industrial-scale cellular agriculture technology and also a reflection of our unwavering commitment to usher in a new era of food production—one where health, taste, ethics and sustainability converge seamlessly,” said TCB CEO Dr. Hamid Noori. “The European cultivated meat sector has vast potential and considerable opportunity for growth. As this market gains prominence, our objective is to ensure consistent access to high-quality, sustainable meat for everyone. Attaining EFSA certification is a significant step in this direction.” The cell-based sausage product for which TCB seeks EFSA certification is similar to boiled sausages used in hot dogs and has been developed in close collaboration with TCB sister company The Family Butchers. It is a hybrid sausage product composed of vegan ingredients, including significant amounts of cultivated meat. Leveraging the combined expertise of both entities ensures that consumers will experience the familiar, delectable taste they love, all while benefiting from a sustainable and ethically produced product. EFSA certification is governed by a strict regulatory framework which emphasizes food safety standards. Achieving certification by EFSA for TCB’s cultivated sausage will indicate the safety of its cultivated meat products as measured by the highest European standards. It also charts the course and lays the groundwork for regulatory approvals worldwide. This strategic roadmap underscores the company’s determination to lead in the global cultivated meat industry, giving hundreds of startups in this space a path toward viable and scalable commercialization, setting new standards in food safety, innovation, and accessibility. About The Cultivated B (TCB) The Cultivated B’s multinational team of scientists develops and applies breakthrough technologies in cellular agriculture, precision fermentation and advanced bioreactor technology to enable scalable commercialization of the cellular-agriculture industry. TCB serves startups, corporations and academic research institutions within the food, pharma, cosmetics and personal care industries. With its pioneering engineering and production capabilities, TCB enables other companies to produce alternative proteins, such as cultivated meat, at industrial scale. The company’s fundamental commitment to minimizing the natural resources used paves the way toward a sustainable future, locally, regionally and globally. TCB’s research and development team is based in Germany, with manufacturing and an innovation hub based in Canada’s Toronto region. For more information, visit and follow the company on LinkedIn.
