Did you know "wide awake surgery" with local anesthesia is an option for patients who need minor surgery for conditions such as trigger finger or carpal tunnel syndrome? With wide awake surgery, patients save time and money! Less time is spent getting pre-op clearance and post-op recovery time is virtually cut in half. Better yet, patients save money using local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia which is always more expensive. Plus, you can have your morning coffee and you'll be able to drive yourself home afterward!
