Santa Maria is an idyllic community nestled in Santa Barbara County. Located directly on the California coast, the Mediterranean climate lends itself to the many vineyards, wineries and agricultural businesses in the area. With miles of beaches and upscale housing, it’s a perfect place to settle. If there’s a downside it’s that since Santa Maria is not located in a major metropolitan center, residents may be concerned about where to go for optimal medical care or to have surgery.

  • Fortunately, in nearby Santa Barbara, Advanced Surgical employees some of the top doctors and surgeons for many miles around. They are experts in their respective fields of medicine, including cardiothoracic, breast cancer, gastrointestinal, and vascular. Even more impressive, the surgeons at Advanced Surgical are some of the only doctors in central California qualified to perform the far less invasive laparoscopic surgical method.

    During laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes a few tiny incisions rather than completely opening up the patient. They then perform surgery by inserting a camera into one small opening, and use the images displayed on a monitor to guide the instruments, which are inserted through another incision. Patient’s who have laparoscopic surgery report less pain, a quicker recovery period and less scarring than those who have traditional surgery.
