Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) work in cooperation with a patient’s doctors and surgeons. Connie Hill and Josh Hill perform General Anesthesia, which involves putting patients to sleep, and Regional Anesthesia, which includes epidural steroids for low back and leg pain, and blocks that can be placed so that almost any area of the body can be separately put to sleep to enable a patient to be comfortable when a surgeon operates. They also provide sedation for scopes including gastroscopies and colonoscopies and for other minor surgeries.
