Patient Testimonials

Linda R.


I elected to have my surgery done under a local-only anesthesia and highly recommend it.  The benefits of being fully awake and able to walk out of the hospital immediately after the procedure far outweigh any momentary discomfort of the injection, which really isn’t any more painful than receiving an IV.  I was able to participate in the conversations and was totally comfortable through the procedure, since no tourniquet was used; additionally I did not have to battle an anesthetic “hangover”.  I have carpal tunnel syndrome on the other hand as well, although not as bad, however if it eventually needs surgery I would not have the surgery done any other way!
