Dr. Martin and Dr. Merrill Discuss Anesthesiology

Your anesthesiologist is one of the most important aspects of your surgery. Dr. Martin and Dr. Maryl discuss how the proper anesthesiology can impact your recovery.

Dr. Martin limits the number of cases of general anesthesia because of the negative side effects during recovery. Instead, Dr. Maryl employs IV sedation, which can avoid nausea and vomiting. Regional blocks can also be placed for breast and abdominal procedures to limit your exposure to narcotics and help with pain control during your recovery.

Proper pain control helps you feel comfortable enough to get up and move, which facilitates a more speedy recovery.
