Specialties

Dr. Lance Parks has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    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.

Never again

As Dr. Parks is an anesthesiologist, most of the categories here aren't relevant. The proof is in the operating room. A couple of years ago I woke up in the middle of a joint replacement procedure. I could tell doctors and nurses seemed to be in overdrive in the OR--as though something was wrong. Then they slowed down and I could HEAR THE SAW CUTTING THROUGH MY BONE. I became conscious a couple of other times during the surgery. Isn't it the anesthesiologist's job to keep you "under" ? (in addition to monitoring vitals to make sure you don't crash--and whatever else they do.) I think he is retired now, but if you're headed into surgery and find out he's your guy, get up and walk away.
