Regional Anesthesia

The best care

Regional anesthesia care (RA) refers to the techniques used to make only certain regions of the body "numb" to the pain of surgery.

  • Epidural anesthesia

  • Spinal anesthesia

  • Peripheral nerve block (or plexus anesthesia)

  • Local anesthesia


Regional anesthesia can be used alone or combined with sedation. as well as general anesthesia in order to provide the anesthetic. Additionally, regional anesthesia usually provides for a prolonged period of superior pain control (analgesia).  Depending on the method used, this pain control can sometimes be extended up to seven days.
