Dr. Mosser

Biography

FTM Top and body masculinization/body feminization surgeon Scott W. Mosser, MD, began his interest in medicine early, earning a Fulbright Scholarship to Ecuador where he spent a year investigating the Ecuadorian healthcare system. Dr. Mosser studied medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston TX and Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland OH where he completed an internship and six years of comprehensive general and plastic surgery training. After a cosmetic surgery fellowship, his private practice thrived for years in the realm of cosmetic face and body surgery.  However, in recent years he has found special meaning in transferring the results and service standards from cosmetic surgery to the reconstructive surgery needs of the transgender population.  He finds working with transgender individuals to be deeply meaningful. This work is very consistent with the cleft lip and palate reconstructive surgery which he performs with the organization he founded (Destination: Hope International Medical Missions) to travel the world to treat children with birth defects. Dr. Mosser has a private practice with offices in downtown San Francisco at 450 Sutter Street, Union Square.  He performs surgery at fully certified institutions in the area, including the Vista Surgery Center, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, the San Francisco Surgery Center, the California Pacific Medical Center.
