- Pain Medicine
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.
- Back Pain
- Complex Regional Pain Syndromes
- Chronic Pain
- Cancer Pain

Dr. Ruggeroli spent 10 minutes with me. refused to believe I was in continued pain 6 weeks after surgery, even though I was in tears. He told me to take tylenol. 3 months later I ended up having emergency surgery for a abbcess that was left by the previous surgeon ( no wonder I was in pain ). Avoid this guy if you want to be listened to and treated with respect. He needs to retire or go in to another profession.
The doctor barely examined me. He spent almost the whole time staring at the computer then did a quick test to check for nerve issues. He told me I wasn't in enough pain to consider treatment and the pain will probably clear on its own. He didn't have me bend in any way to properly diagnose me for the facet joint problem I found that I had when I went elsewhere and another doctor took the time to ask questions and find by having me bend different ways. I left with no answers it was a complete waste of my time. Plus I didn't get seen until an hour and a half after my appointment time.
