Sedation for Vascular Catheter or Other Procedures
Sedation or anesthesia is available upon patient request. Our highly qualified anesthesiologist, Dr. Felipe Martinez, consults with all patients prior to any procedures to clearly explain any possible low risks associated with the use of sedatives. He will ensure there is emergency drug/equipment ready in the rare case of an adverse event. He is well trained in the most current sedation techniques, will have many options and will at all times remain at the patient’ side until the procedure is over. He also does consults prior and after for the detoxification or substance abuse problems related to chronic pain, addressing the pain issues while exchanging broad opioids with specific mediated non-addictive medications. He can also help in cases where pain is non-respondent, with various modern techniques.
