Specialties

Dr. Lorenzo T Hughes has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Very caring and kind. Have seen him for years and he is agressive treating my pain. Dr. Hughes did shots in my spine for a while but they stopped working. Then he did a surgery to implant a spinal stimulator. My pain is very mild most days. Dr. Hughes truly changed my life and I am grateful.

Dr. Hughes did an injection and made all my pain go away! Plus he makes time to talk, is always nice, and always has a smile on his face. Dr. Hughes even makes jokes that put his patient's at ease. For a doctor he is pretty funny. You can really tell he cares about helping people. If you have pain I recomend you go see this doctor!
