Physician/Peer Testimonials

As a board certified gynecologist, I am dealing with high numbers of vaginal operations and my interest is focused on urogynecology and pelvic relaxation problems. I decided that my next goal was to increase my patient?s quality of life as high as possible and to expand my knowledge regarding the sensitive pelvic and vaginal areas and focus my education on the cosmetic and aesthetic procedures that my patients are asking for.

After spending a great deal of time searching on the web, I found Dr. Red Alinsod. I also found too many other respectable colleagues, who offer such education. To be honest, I did not know any of them, since I am from far away Greece. I decided to contact Dr. Alinsod because of his reputation, professionalism, and great love of his job. My first impression was completely right since he answered my phone call almost immediately the same day. We had first contact by the phone and he gave me the feeling that my long travel to USA will be easy and very well organized. I received from this gentleman a full time education! He taught me all of his techniques and tricks over the week of surgeries. His staff looked after me at the maximum and of course we had a great time late in the afternoons to enjoy beautiful Laguna Beach.

After my return to Greece, I started immediately to perform all the new skills I acquired and using the knowledge I have received. I felt my surgical skills touched the very highest standards and my patients appreciated all of this. I feel respect for Dr. Alinsod and I am sure that he will be beside me any time I need him to support my practice in any way.

Sailing through the internet I came to know about Dr. Alinsod through his web page. It was really great for me to take my training with him and get certified by America Academy of Cosmetic Gynecology in Oct 2007. He, as a urogynecologist and aesthetic vaginal surgeon, is an innovated man with great ideas for converting, through surgery, something beautiful. The time I was with him in the training, he taught me to be very precise in the techniques, and how to get great results. For me, as a urogynecologist also, it was easier for me to understand his techniques and apply them along with the pelvic reconstructive surgery. He is a very nice, human, patient and professional teacher. I had a great time at South Coast Urogyecology center in Laguna Beach. Thank you, Dr. Alinsod.

I had an amazing experience during my preceptorship! I learned various techniques for pelvic floor reconstruction that I can't wait to apply in the OR. My experience in those 4 days were invaluable. I had the opportunity to see both inpatient pelvic reconstruction cases, suburethral sling placement, and outpatient aesthetic vaginal surgeries which included clitoral hood reduction, labiaplasty, and vaginoplasty.

You are a great teacher and your way of teaching is very efficient and thorough. I wouldn't trade the experience of training with you over anyone else. It was worth traveling across the country. Your knowledge in the field, I believe, is unsurpassable as well as your bedside manners. I did my research on physicians trained in labiaplasty and I know I made the right choice because not only does one learn the aesthetic portion, one learns the proper anatomy and technique needed for pelvic reconstruction. I can't foresee any physician who desires training in pelvic reconstruction or aesthetic vaginal surgery ever regret doing the preceptorship with you or ever think they have been short-changed.

I highly recommend this preceptorship! Thanks again!

I have always had a passion for vaginal reconstructive surgery. Therefore, when I decided to take the next step in my training. I not only looked for someone with excellent surgical skills and on the cutting edge of cosmetic vaginal surgery but someone who could inspire me to see things in a whole new light. Dr. Red Alinsod did just that, he generously shared his wealth of experience and outstanding surgical skills but even more so, he mentored me in how to reconstruct my practice and inspired me to take my surgical skills to a whole new level and direction. Both he and his staff have been phenomenal in every which way.

I am a board certified gynecologist practicing in Reno NV with a very talented and progressive group of physicians. Our interests include general gynecology, minimally invasive surgery, urogynecology with pelvic reconstruction and in-office procedures. I first met Dr. Alinsod about 5 years ago when I came to watch him do pelvic reconstruction with permanent mesh. I was ?wowed? by his surgical skills, compassionate and caring nature, and his teaching style. He made it easy for me to adopt his practical, innovative, and brilliant approach to pelvic reconstruction. Over the past 5 years, our group has been using the ?Alinsod technique? for vaginal reconstruction with great results. After reviewing his data on the Restorelle mesh presented at AAGL in 2008, we decided to visit again to gain further insight on his current techniques and pearls regarding pelvic reconstruction and urethral slings. Mpathy sponsored the day with Dr. Alinsod and his delightful staff and we found this course to be very helpful and enlightening. He also tickled our interest in aesthetic vaginal surgery and invited us to take his training course.

I took the aesthetic vaginal surgery course with Dr. Alinsod and gained even greater respect for him. The course was fascinating, informative, comprehensive, unbelievable, tailored, professional, and ?FUN! The amount of information provided was incredible and beyond generous. The enthusiasm that Dr. Alinsod has in this area of his practice is contagious. During the course, I kept trying to process all the pearls and tools and how I could apply them to my practice as soon as possible. While the surgeries were impressive and packed full of tricks and tips for success, the supporting information regarding setting up this kind of practice was equally helpful. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Alinsod and learn from a true master and pioneer in the field of vaginal surgery. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in aesthetic vaginal surgery and believe that the investment will be returned many-fold!

I have had the pleasure of observing Dr. Red Alinsod doing reconstructive surgery, in a lecture setting and as a consulting physician in my own operating room. His skill as a gynecologic surgeon is exciting to observe. As an educator he has the ability to make difficult concepts and techniques easy to understand and to translate into practice. A patient can find no better surgeon for urogynecologic problems. And any surgeon who has the privilege to observe him will benefit greatly. He is certainly one of the finest Urogynecologist in the country.

I am a board certified OBGYN physician and have been practicing in New York over the past 25 years. I have been performing vaginoplasty and labiaplasty with diode laser for the last 7 years. Even though I have had good results, I have dealt with some surgical aesthetic concerns.

With Dr. Alinsod's preceptorship program I learned of three major surgical tips in performing these procedures. First, using the Ellman Surgitron I am able to make precise clean incisions without lateral heat damage. Secondly, surgery under local anesthesia has benefitted both myself and the patient. Lastly, learning how to do a scar revision, I am able to deal with a patient who has aesthetic conerns due to alteral heat damage.

Dr. Alinsod is an excellent surgeon, great teacher and a fine person. This was an extremely positive educational experience for me.

Dr. Red Alinsod is a unique physician. I have been in practice and developed techniques, instrumentation and products for many years, and I have seen few doctors equal to him in pelvic reconstructive surgery. His innovations for altering standard procedures into better operations and developing new surgical advances for difficult, old problems have had excellent outcomes. He is a truly remarkable surgeon, a kind and dedicated physician and a nice person. I am happy to call him ?friend and colleague?.

Thank you, Dr. Alinsod, for the opportunity to observe your pelvic reconstructive surgical practice. I appreciate that your techiques use innovative technology but are rooted in a thorough understanding of anatomy and traditional surgery.

It has been a pleasure to work side-by-side Dr. Alinsod for over ten years now. As the Chairman of Providence Holy Cross Medical Center I have seen the innovation and excellence Dr. Alinsod has brought to our department and to our community. As a personal friend and colleague, I have seen the drive and commitment Red has given to ensure that knowledge is disseminated and that our patients always have the best of care available. I have learned much from Dr. Alinsod not only with words and ideas but with his hands-on approach to teaching. He shows his commitment to teaching every week with his mentoring of Harbor UCLA Urogynecology Fellows and UCLA Family Practice residents from Northridge. His teaching of hundreds of physicians from all across America in the art of pelvic surgery is arguably second to none. Dr. Alinsod is a top-notch, state-of-the art, compassionate surgeon. A true professional and expert in his field. Red instills confidence, trust, and comfort in his patients and his peers.
