About Dr. Red Alinsod
Dr. Red Alinsod is director and owner of South Coast Urogynecology, the Alinsod Institute for Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery, in Laguna Beach, CA. He is a world renowned Urogynecologist and Aesthetic Vaginal Surgeon and the founder of the first CME approved Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery Workshops sponsored by The American Academy of Cosmetic Gynecologists.
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. He was the first Rutledge Fellow at MD Anderson Cancer and Tumor Institute. Red was also accepted to Yaleís Gynecologic Oncology fellowship but was unable to attend due to a military commitment. He 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 successful pelvic surgery practice.
In 2004, Red was recruited by Mission Hospital in Laguna Beach, CA, to develop The Womenís Center. This unique center of excellence has catered to the needs of women from annual paps and physicals, incontinence and prolapse treatments, to bioidentical hormones and menopause, to aesthetic vaginal surgery and lasers. He is the only physician performing endometrial ablations, tubal sterilizations, labiaplasty, clitoral hood reduction, vaginoplasty, perineoplasty, posterior repairs, hymenoplasty, and laser treatments in the office without IVs and in a micro tumescent manner. Protocols Red has developed over the decades are used nationally and worldwide.
Red teaches the only course in the world that enables the office based surgeon to safely perform labial surgery (labia minora plasty, labia majora plasty, clitoral hood reduction), hymenoplasty, perineoplasty, vaginoplasty, and posterior compartment repairs with mesh augmentation with less than 40cc of local anesthesia in total. In fact, a labiaplasty of either minora or majora averages only 7 c of local anesthesia. These amazing procedures are done with the patient extremely comfortable and in no pain, watching TV, listening to an iPod, or taking a short nap. Recovery after surgery is immediate and the patient goes home in no pain for the rest of the day. Dr. Alinsod is the first surgeon to use pain pumps in vaginal surgery to enable complex surgeries to be done in the doctorís office. Dr. Alinsodís techniques are truly ground breaking.
Red is also highly sought after in presenting talks and giving surgical workshops locally and nationally. He is the national instructor in Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery for the American Academy of Cosmetic Gynecologist. Redís focus on aesthetic vaginal surgery to improve patient lives have led to multiple innovations and inventions such as the Lone Star APS Retractor, the APS Surgical Table, the shaped Restorelle A and P meshes, the Ascend Prolapse devices, and the APS Draping System, that have had a major impact on how pelvic surgery is performed worldwide. His lecture and teaching affiliations have been with Mpathy Medical, Caldera Medical, Boston Scientific, Ethicon, Lone Star/Cooper Surgical, Monarch Medical, ConMed, and Palomar Medical.
