Surgical Services

Kern Medical offers the full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient surgical services. Our focus is on your health and safety and offering you (our patients) state-of-the-art techniques utilizing modern technologies such as the latest Da Vinci surgical Robot, lasers and other minimally invasive modalities. The members of the surgery department at Kern Medical understand that any type of surgery can cause anxiety and that there is no such thing as a “routine procedure” if that procedure is being done on you. We are passionate about working closely with our patients and their families to provide comfort and reassurance as well as educational information about what to expect before, during, and after surgery.


We are here when you need us. Kern Medical is recognized as the premier trauma and tertiary care center in Kern County. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, and surgical services staff are available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week, offering expert, compassionate and often life-saving care.

Who we are:

Our board-certified general surgeons are highly skilled in procedures involving the stomach, esophagus, bowel, liver, pancreas, and gall bladder. They also treat patients with thyroid gland conditions, hernias simple, complex, and recurring, and diseases involving the skin and breast.

Our board-certified specialty surgeons provide services including orthopedic surgery, urological surgery, thoracic surgery, spine surgery, breast surgery, neurosurgery, trauma surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, podiatric surgery, hand surgery, ophthalmology, and otorhinolaryngology.

We offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to benign and malignant diseases of the breast, with teams of skilled breast surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, and plastic surgeons that specialize in breast reconstruction.

Our surgery faculty works hard to enhance the Surgical Department’s expertise, range and size by recruiting surgeons who exemplify our commitment to excellence through their training at some of the nation’s premier universities. Many are nationally and internationally recognized in their areas of expertise, as evidenced through their active participation in surgical societies, service on specialty boards, and contributions on editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals.

In serving our community, Kern Medical is focused on taking care of your needs now, during any crisis, as well committed to future growth of our programs. New programs – such as head and neck oncology, skull-based surgery, breast oncology, robotic surgery, and innovative laparoscopic teaching – reflect the medical advancements that will continue to reshape our department. They also allow us to continue to build strong academic relationships, such as our long-standing ties with UCLA, as well as solid clinical ties with our local physicians.

As part of our dedication to the highest surgical standards, we are proud to be a valued community resource working with referring physicians to deliver the best and most cost-effective health care for patients and their families.
