Chances are very good that you will meet a surgeon on the operating table at some point. In fact, one study suggests individuals may have an average of 9.2 surgeries in a lifetime.
At Memorial Hospital Los Banos, we provide surgical services for a wide range of health needs, whether i's orthopedic surgeries for hips and knees, tendon and ligament repairs or ear, nose and throat surgeries. We also offer gynecological surgeries, endoscopy services, gastrointestinal surgeries, basic breast surgeries (such as mastectomies) and limited cardiovascular surgeries.
As part of our anesthesia specialty services, we offer a pain management clinic for patients with chronic pain conditions. Participating anesthesiologists can inject regional blocks, a type of anesthetic shot, to block pain around a nerve or specific group of nerves, ultimately providing fast, effective pain relief.
