The management of your pain is of great importance to us. We assess your level of pain from the time of admission until you receive our post-procedure call at home. You will be asked to rate the intensity of your pain on a numerical scale from zero (0) to ten (10), with each number representing a degree of pain. We will use this input to alter the therapy as needed to assure your comfort.
We will often use a combination of different modalities to help make you comfortable, including oral medications, intravenous medications, nerve blocks, and local anesthetic during the procedure. Prior to the procedure, the management of your discomfort will be discussed with you. Please bring up any questions or concerns you may have at this time.
