Lompoc General Surgery

Comprehensive Surgical Procedures

The term “general surgery” is somewhat of a misnomer, as general surgeons are anything but generalists. General surgery is a discipline devoted to the comprehensive care of nine surgical categories, including the digestive tract, abdomen, breast, head and neck, vascular system, endocrine system, surgical oncology, trauma, and critical illness.

At Lompoc Valley Medical Center, our team of general surgeons has extensive experience performing a variety of procedures, including:

  • Appendectomy
  • Cholecystectomy
  • Colon resection/colectomy
  • Hemorrhoidectomy
  • Postoperative procedures
  • Colonoscopy
  • Skin lesion/cyst removal

Our qualified general surgeons are able to perform surgeries on patients of all ages—from children to older adults. While some surgeries are considered “elective” and are scheduled in advance, others are more emergent—such as in the case of an appendectomy. In these cases, you may only have a few hours between diagnosis and surgery. No matter the type of surgical procedure you need, you can expect us to treat you with the utmost care and respect—keeping you in the loop at every stage of the process. With cutting-edge equipment, knowledgeable surgeons, and genuinely personalized care, we have become a trusted name in general surgery throughout Lompoc and the surrounding areas.

Care for Before, During & After Your Surgery

Our general surgeons take care of patients before surgery (pre-op), during surgery (peri-op), and after surgery is completed (post-op). We know that it can feel overwhelming to be told that you need to have surgery and navigating the process on your own can be daunting. That is why we take the time to walk you through why surgery may be necessary, what to expect, and answer any questions you might have. Even if you are having a more emergent surgery, you will still usually have the opportunity to meet your surgeon beforehand, so you can ask questions.

After surgery, we will follow up with our patients at specific checkpoints to ensure their recovery is going smoothly, help troubleshoot any problems that may arise, and help you manage any pain so you can rest properly and fully recover. Our goal is to help you have the most positive surgical experience possible.
