Regional Anesthesia

Our team successfully utilizes regional anesthetic techniques for a variety of surgeries ranging from joint replacements to extensive abdominal surgery.  One of the more common approaches is a peripheral nerve block, where a numbing medication such as lidocaine is injected under ultrasound guidance near nerves that supply pain to the site of surgery. These injections typically last around 18 hours, covering the most painful portion of recovery. Our modern approach to pain management allows patients to participate in early physical therapy after surgery, to avoid heavy opioid use and to enjoy a good night’s sleep after an exhausting day! Our continued commitment to a multi-modal, patient-centered approach to perioperative care allows us to integrate new modalities as they arise and to remain at the forefront of medicine.
