Regional Anesthesia Instructions

If "regional" anesthesia was used for your surgery (the anesthesiologist gave you an injection or inserted a catheter that made your entire limb "numb"), you will have received instructions from your anesthesiologist, particularly about any pain pump that might have been sent home with you. If you have any questions, please call William Beaumont Hospital at (248) 898-5000 and ask to speak to the anesthesiologist on call. He or she can answer your questions or direct you to come in for evaluation.
