SUGAR LAND—(December 10, 2014) — Physicians at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital recently performed Fort Bend’s first transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block with laparoscopic colon surgery to minimize post-surgical pain.
TAP blocks numb the nerves supplying the anterior abdominal wall prior to abdominal surgery. They are performed under general anesthesia in the operating room. The TAP block limits the amount of post-operative pain, minimizes the need for post-surgery pain medication and reduces the length of stay in the hospital.
At Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, our goal is to get you back to the life you had before chronic joint pain. Our experienced surgeons use the latest advancements including, minimally invasive procedures for faster recovery after joint replacement. And with the comprehensive, individualized care from diagnosis through rehabilitation, our team of specialist has the expertise to put you on the path to fast healing.
