Spinal Anesthesia

Back to Anesthesiology

Spinal Anesthesia is a form of anesthesia that may be used for children undergoing common urologic and general surgery procedures. 

This program, available for newborns up to children less than 2 years old, eliminates the need for general anesthesia, intubation and the use of narcotics. It may also lead to less time in the operating room since the effects of the spinal anesthesia are immediate. Recovery from procedures is also faster since, as soon as the child can move their lower limbs, they may be discharged to go home.
