Dr. Jonathan Keith joined East Coast Advanced Plastic Surgery in November 2019. Dr. Keith joined ECAPS from his career in academia where he served as Associate Professor of Surgery and Residency Program Director in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. He is a fellowship-trained and board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in microvascular surgery. He is a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health and founder of the Rutgers Center for Transgender Health.
In 2018, Dr Keith founded the first multidisciplinary clinical program for transgender patients in New Jersey. That year, Dr. Keith was the first surgeon in the state to perform a female-to-male phalloplasty for gender affirmation. He has gone on to pioneer and publish his research into novel techniques, outcomes and insurance coverage of gender affirming surgery. He has authored an editorial for USA Today and lectures nationally on the topic.
Dr. Keith completed his 7-year residency at the University of Pittsburgh, one of the oldest and most well-respected plastic surgery training programs in the nation. In 2012, he was awarded the Stephen S. Kroll Fellowship in microsurgery at the University Hospital of Gent, Belgium. He is only the fourth American to earn this distinction. During his fellowship, Dr. Keith trained under Dr. Phillip Blondeel and Dr. Stan Monstrey, world-renowned experts in microvascular breast reconstruction and gender affirmation surgery, respectively. There he gained expert experience in cutting edge techniques such as DIEP flaps for breast reconstruction, vaginoplasty and phalloplasty.
Dr. Keith earned his medical degree at the University of Pittsburgh and completed his undergraduate work at the University of Maryland. He has also participated in medical mission trips to South Africa and Vietnam. Dr. Keith’s work has been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and he values his role as surgeon and teacher of surgical principles and aesthetic ideals in reconstructive surgery.
