Obstetrics and Gynecology
Our longtime and dedicated Obstetrician-Gynecologists (OBGYN), Dr. Rodney Huss, MD and Dr. Lloyd Trujillo, MD have delivered thousands of babies in the Lompoc Valley and help manage the gynecological health of our female patients. Our OBGYNs provide medical and surgical care to women, with expertise in pregnancy, childbirth, and disorders of the reproductive system. This may include preventative care, prenatal care, detection of sexually transmitted diseases, Pap test screening and family planning.
Our adherence to patient-centered care ensures our caring obstetricians are there throughout your entire birthing experience – from planning your pregnancy to delivery and through post-natal care. Our obstetricians guide expectant mothers through prenatal care and pre-delivery milestones, ensuring the mother and baby are prepared for safe and quick delivery.
Our physicians can treat some potential complications arising during pregnancy, including:
- Ectopic pregnancy, a condition in which the embryo is within the fallopian tube
- Maternal high blood pressure (Pre-Eclampsia)
Whether the baby is delivered vaginally or through a planned or emergency caesarian section, our obstetricians will ensure the highest levels of safety and comfort.
While life-saving in some circumstances, unnecessary C-sections can pose serious risks to mothers—higher rates of hemorrhage, transfusions, infection and blood clots—and babies—higher rates of infection, respiratory complications, and neonatal intensive care unit stay.
Our gynecologists will guide you through the diagnosis and management of reproductive systems from the onset of puberty through menopause and later years. Our gynecologists conduct annual Pap tests and pelvic exams and treat disorders such as menstrual abnormalities, menopause issues, benign pelvic and uterine fibroid tumors; endometriosis; incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, infections, pain or discomfort in the uterus or genitals and more. Our physicians may also assist patients with contraception and infertility concerns.
Our gynecology team performs surgical procedures related to female reproductive systems, including tubal ligation and hysterectomies, as well as removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
