The endoscopy center has two procedure rooms, PACU and step-down area. The medical office has 19 exam rooms for pre-and-post-op appointments and minor procedures and a two-room X-ray suite.
The Cal Med surgery centers are staffed by highly skilled and experienced surgeons specializing in general, endovascular, vascular, ear, nose and throat, oral and plastic surgery, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, dental surgery and other disciplines.
They are licensed and board certified surgeons, and most are fellowship trained, meaning they have achieved the highest level of training in their specialties.

Ophthalmologists are physicians who provide complete eye care and vision services such eye exams, medical eye care for conditions like glaucoma and iritis, surgical eye care for trauma, cataracts, and glaucoma, diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions related to other diseases like diabetes; and plastic surgery.
Oral surgeons, also known as maxillofacial surgeons, perform many different dental procedures to correct problems with the teeth, gums, jaw and face. While dentists perform many procedures, oral surgeons generally handle those that are more complex such as facial reconstruction, oral birth defects and removal of impacted teeth.
Plastic surgeons perform a wide diversity of procedures from head to toe with most surgeries divided into two categories: reconstructive and cosmetic. Reconstructive surgery is designed to improve function and form and restore to the fullest extent possible the original esthetics of the body part. Cosmetic surgery involves enhancement of certain normal parts of the body.
Vascular surgeons provide treatment through surgery on diagnosed patients with diseases of the arterial, venous and lymphatic systems (excluding the intracranial and coronary arteries). The purpose of vascular surgery is to treat vascular diseases, which are diseases of the arteries and veins. Arterial disease is a condition in which blood clots, arteriosclerosis and other vascular conditions occur in the arteries. Venous disease involves problems that occur in the veins. Some vascular conditions occur only in arteries while others occur only in the veins with some affecting both the veins and arteries.
