In the majority of hip arthroscopy cases, when a regional anesthesia is used, a spinal block is used rather than an epidural. A spinal block and epidural differ both in where the medication is administered into the spine as well as in the duration of its effect. For long cases, which will require an anesthesiologist to continually dose a patient over time, an epidural is warranted. For cases when a procedure should not exceed three hours, a spinal block is typically adequate. An anesthesiologist speaks with each patient prior to a procedure in order to make sure the patient is adequately informed. To learn more, read about Anesthesiology Frequently Asked Questions .
