At Coast Surgical we offer the most advanced operative techniques available. Our group prides in engaging in the most modern surgical methods by continuously studying. Some of the techniques we use include minimally invasive laparoscopy, robotically assistance for intraabdominal surgeries and endoscopic interventions.

Surgical Procedures

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Gallstones are hard particles that develop in the gallbladder and occur commonly with age. Some patients experience abdominal pain and nausea due to gallstones. These symptoms typically resolve after surgical removal of the gallbladder and gallstones. This can often be done safely with minimally invasive surgery. Patients can usually go home on the day of the surgery, and recovery is often very quick.
Breast Surgery

Breast cancer affects roughly 1 out of every 8 women in the United States. Fortunately, there have been significant advancements in the treatment of breast cancer with great improvement in outcomes. Breast cancer surgery involves removing the cancerous growth and sampling the draining lymph nodes. Depending on the patient's cancer, surgery can be breast conserving or may need removal of the whole breast. Fortunately, our associated plastic surgeon may offer immediate breast reconstruction. The surgery is typically performed as outpatient.

 

We are part of the Barnhart Cancer Center in Chula Vista. We coordinate care with all other members of team including radiation oncologists, oncologists, navigators.

In addition, there are numerous benign (non-cancerous) breast conditions that can affect women during their lifetime. Some may require surgical removal of affected tissues, which can be performed outpatient with a small incision.  Many other conditions can be treated in the office with the aid of our ultrasound technology.

Hernia Surgery
A hernia is a defect of the abdominal wall that causes a bulge in the affected area and may be painful. Hernias can only be corrected with surgery, either traditional open, laparoscopic or robotic surgery. Surgical treatment is individualized for each patient, depending on the size of the hernia, the location, and whether it is unilateral (occurring on one side) or bilateral (occurring on both sides).
Colon Surgery
There are a variety of benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) conditions of the colon and rectum for which surgery is recommended. Traditional open or minimally invasive surgical techniques may be used to treat these conditions.
Anorectal
Anorectal disorders are very common, but patients are often too embarrassed to talk about them. Many patients experience anal pain, discomfort, or bleeding. These symptoms may be due to a variety of pathologies, including hemorrhoids, anal fissures, anal abscesses, and fistulas. Surgery is often the most effective treatment to manage or even cure these conditions. Procedures are typically done in the operating room under general anesthesia (while patients are completely asleep), and patients generally go home on the same day.
Bloodless Medicine and Surgery
For many patients, blood transfusion is not an option, whether for religious reasons or safety concerns. The Coast Surgical Group surgery team understands and respects this view. We are experts in patient blood management, improving health outcomes and creating peace of mind for those who seek the very best healthcare, without the use of blood or blood products.
Hiatal Hernia and Antireflux Surgery:
Many patients suffer from severe acid reflux due to a defected in the diaphragm, where the esophagus transitions to stomach. Long-term acid reflux can require daily medication for suppression of symptoms and many even lead to esophageal cancers in the long term. Successful hiatal hernia surgeries can often decrease acid reflux to the point where most patient can be off antacid medications.
Laparoscopic Splenectomy
This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia. It uses a laparoscope, an instrument with a tiny camera and a light at the end. Three to four incisions are made on the abdomen, and the laparoscope is inserted through one of the incisions. The laparoscope allows viewing the area on a bigger screen. Other surgical instruments are inserted through the other incisions. Gas is pumped to expand the abdomen to give more space to work. The spleen is removed using the laparoscope and other instruments. The small incisions are stitched.
Robotic Surgery
Robotic surgery is the latest advancement in minimally invasive surgery. Using the Da Vinci Robotic surgery platform, many intraabdominal procedures such as hernia repair, hiatal hernia repair, and intestinal resection can be done safely with small incisions. The benefits to the patient include having precise surgery in confined spaces. Many of these surgeries are done outpatient, which means patients can go home the day of their surgery.
