Advanced Regional Anesthesia Techniques
Our physician anesthesiologists are nationally recognized experts in advanced regional anesthesia techniques. Regional anesthesia is the injection of local anesthetics (medicines like Novocain) around the nerves that sense pain from the part of your body undergoing surgery.
These techniques ensure that your pain is controlled during and after your surgery, so you can go home comfortably. Because of our expertise in this area, we have been designated as a center of excellence and other physicians from around the country visit UCAS to learn from our anesthesiologists.
