Inpatient and Outpatient Surgical Services Using Advanced Technology in a Warm, Safe Environment
Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital (TOSH), a campus of Los Robles Regional Medical Center, offers a broad range of inpatient and outpatient surgical services in order to provide service to a broad spectrum of patients. The scope of surgical services includes:
- Anesthesiology: The medical specialty focusing on administering pain-killing drugs during surgery in the operating room. Anesthesiology also includes the field of Pain Management, a sub-specialty which helps manage chronic (ongoing) pain in patients with prescription medication, injections, or other therapeutic methods.
- Bariatric: The branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity.
- Breast Reconstruction: Microvascular Free Flap reconstruction is a reconstructive surgery in which a tissue is transplanted from a part of the body (for example, the lower abdomen, or back) to create a new breast mound. Some women may require an implant, in addition to the flap reconstruction, for recreating the breast.
- Ear, Nose & Throat: Otolaryngologists are physicians trained in the medical and surgical management and treatment of patients with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. They are commonly referred to as ENT physicians.
- General Surgery: Focuses on the surgical intervention or removal of diseased organ or tissue.
- Gynecology: The medical practice focusing on the health of the female reproductive system.
- Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery: Total hip replacement is a common orthopedic procedure. As the population ages, it is expected to become even more common. Hip replacement surgery involves removing the head of the thighbone (femur) and replacing the ball-and-socket mechanism of the hip with artificial implants. This relieves pain and improves mobility. Minimally invasive hip replacement allows the surgeon to perform the hip replacement through one or two small incisions. Patients usually have less pain compared with traditional hip replacement surgery, and rehabilitation is faster.
- Neurosurgery: The medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system.
- Oncological Surgery: The surgical treatment of cancer.
- Ophthalmology: The branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye.
- Orthopedic Surgery: The branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
- Pain Management: A rapidly growing medical specialty that takes a multi-disciplinary approach to treating all kinds of pain.
- Plastic Surgery: A specialty concerned with the correction or restoration of form and function. Though cosmetic surgery is the best-known kind of plastic surgery, most plastic surgery is not cosmetic: plastic surgery includes many types of reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns.
- Podiatry: The branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the human foot.
- Spine Surgery: The branch of medicine that focuses on the spine, specializing in complex spine surgery, cervical/lumbar spine disorders and spine deformities. These procedures may be performed by Orthopedic or Neuro surgeons.
- Sports Medicine: Provides appropriate care for all structures of the musculoskeletal system directly affected by participation in sporting activity.
- Total Joint Surgery: The replacement of a "worn out" joint with an "artificial" joint. Surgical treatment usually includes removal of bone and replacement of the diseased joint with metal and plastic prosthesis.
- Transurethral Vaporization of the Prostate: A minimally invasive procedure that uses laser therapy to vaporize obstructive tissue in patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy symptoms. The laser beam rapidly heats the obstructive tissue and creates hemostasis, resulting in minimal incisions, less blood loss and quicker recovery.
- Urology: Focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males. The organs treated by urologists include the kidneys, adrenal glands, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs.
- Urogynecology: A subspecialty of Urology and Gynecology that is dedicated to the study and treatment of pelvic floor disorders in women.
- Vascular Surgery: A specialty in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries and veins, are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.
