Regional Anesthesia blocks the pain for the area where a medical procedure is being performed with a local anesthetic solution, with or without the patient being conscious.
We administer peripheral nerve blocks near a nerve or nerve bundle to remove sensation of pain in the area with an ultrasound guided device or fluoroscopy technique for achieving analgesia (the absence of the sense of pain but not the loss of consciousness).
Other methods of regional anesthetics include spinal anesthesia (subarachnoid block), epidural analgesia, and epidural mesthelisa.
Regional Anesthesiology for Acute Postoperative Pain Management
This includes inpatient surgeries (except cardiac surgery), outpatient surgery, hip and knee surgery, upper extremity surgery (including hands and wrists), foot and ankle surgery, and breast oncology. We also provide regional anesthesia for ambulatory services and surgeons.
Optimal Anesthesia Care Plans
Our team of board-certified anesthesiologists and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) carefully review your medical history and other information such as any current medications to ensure there is no interference. From this, an optimal anesthesia care plan can be selected.
