- 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.

I have only been a patient of Dr. Hess's for about 6 months but i can tell you this..he is the most compassionate, determined and hard working Doctor i have ever seen. Todd has taken such good care of me and listened to me. I mean really listened when many many other Drs would not. I always leave smiling and feeling safe. If ever im not allowed to be in the program i can tell you it will be something i did, not his doing. Dr. Hess works tirelessly trying to solve my unknown aggressor and keep me comfortable as possible while dealing with severe neuropathy and a deteriorating spine full of rapidly advancing arthritis, disc pertrusions, nerve compression. Going through all that i do, its an absolute pleasure to be treated so kindly by such a professional as himself. Thanks Doc! VIP
I have been a patient of Dr. Todd for about 17 years now. I came to him with debilitating chronic neuropathy pain in my feet and hands. His treatment plan made the pain not only tolerable but increased my quality of life 10 fold by allowing me to perform tasks that were nearly impossible before I came to his clinic. His bedside manner puts one at ease immediately with humor mixed with solid advice. He is very thorough by listening and understanding you personal situation. I have never felt rushed as he makes sure he takes the time needed to answer all questions. It is obvious that he truly loves his work and has a vast knowledge base and will follow up when he needs to seek more information. His P.A, Una Edwardson is just as professional and understanding. If you seek kind, compassionate care, I give 5 stars to Todd, Una and all their staff at United Pain Center and owe them a deep amount of gratitude for helping me live a quality and productive pain free life.
