Dr. Red Alinsod graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in
1986 and completed his OB/GYN residency from Loma Linda University Medical Center in 1990. His focus in those early years was pelvic surgery. He was the first Rutledge Fellow at MD Anderson Cancer and Tumor Institute and was also accepted as a Galloway Fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Medical Center. Red was accepted to Yale’s Gynecologic Oncology fellowship but was unable to attend due to a military commitment with the US Air Force during this time of global strife in the Middle East. His career took a 180 degree turn as he headed the Gynecologic Services at George Air Force Base, CA, and Nellis Air Force Base, NV, as he concentrated on benign gynecology, urogynecology, and pelvic surgery. His colleagues affectionately called him a “Combat Gynecologist”. During his 12-year military career he was able to train extensively in hysteroscopic and advanced laparoscopic surgery. He accumulated a substantial number of cases and became one of the first fellows of the Accreditation Council of Gynecologic Endoscopy. He was the first surgeon to achieve this distinction in Nevada. He left the Air Force as a Major in 1994 and joined Facey Medical Group in Southern California. For ten years Red built a large and successfulurogynecology, pelvic reconstructive surgery, and aesthetic
vaginal surgery following. He was on the Board of Directors at Facey, Chaired Risk Management, and was a Pension Trustee. He was fortunate enough to train residents and urogynecology fellows from UCLA as well as a large cadre of physicians who flew in for his very successful hands-on preceptorships.

Suggestions & Reviews for Red ALINSOD MD
Dr. Alinsod could not have tried harder to save my uterus. After four months of trying every alternative path, a hysterectomy was unavoidable. On the internet, he is almost exclusively associated with cosmetic surgeries, but Dr. Alinsod is a real, regular-body-organs doctor and surgeon of internal medicine as well. His work goes way beyond the superficial/cosmetic arena. He spent years and years and years operating on internal organs. Any surgery from the belly-button down, if you are a woman, he probably has performed that surgery at least hundreds of times, and has probably broken the thousand threshold on several of them. He was an ob/gyn and urologist maybe 20 years before doing cosmetic surgeries, and he has been doing cosmetic surgeries for a long time now as well, and trains doctors around the world in how to perform them, while continuing to perform the plumbing surgeries. As a potential patient and later a surgical patient, I felt fortunate to be able to see the way he uses a knife, because he has many cosmetic surgeries online to view. His results are fantastic. My experience(s) with this doctor have been nothing short of wonderful. Dr. Alinsod is also very honest and personable. His manner is gentle and efficient, he is very funny, and his reactions in an emergency are lightning-fast and unruffled. I know this because of arriving at his office in a state of emergency.

Here in the Washington, DC area, I interviewed several doctors to perform the surgery that, I needed. I did seven months of research and interviewed several doctors in this area. I spoke with Dr. Alinsod on the phone several times. And, after flying 3,000 miles to met him, I had no doubt in his ability to correct my problem. His attitude toward me as a person and his bedside manner was wonderful. That is something you don't find every day. He repaired my failed rectocele. Other doctors told me that, it could not be done. Dr. Alinsod is one of the nicest, warmest, kindest, most knowledgeable, skilled and humanistic doctors that, I have ever met. I would not hesitate in the least to refer one of my family members or friends to see Dr. Alinsod. He is one of the best doctors that, I have ever been to. Not only is he a good surgeon; he listens and actually treats his patients with kindness. He and his staff are excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Alinsod.

satisfied patient (Patient)
I have never met a kinder, more patient doctor willing to take as much time as you need to understand your body, your surgery or anything you ask him. His pleasant personality belies his willingness to educate his patient about a subject he so obviously holds near and dear. He makes you feel so comfortable and you walk away every time knowing a bit more than you did before. I had rectocele.enterocele repair with a hydrablation and other than the normal pain from recovery, I could not be happier with the fantastic results! I highly recommend Dr Alinsod. You will be so glad you found such a competent, highly skilled, warm hearted doctor.
