Dr. Robert Groysman M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • Is general anesthesia used during brain tumor removal?

    It depends on where the tumor is. If it’s located close or near the speech center or near areas that control movement, your friend may need to be somewhat awake during the surgery and be asked to perform certain actions like moving a limb or answering a question. Believe it or not, the brain actually doesn’t feel any pain and can be worked on while talking to the patient. The parts that hurt are the skin and skull and those can be numbed really well before starting. If the tumor is not in a critical area, we would do general anesthesia for the entire procedure.

  • Do doctors use general anesthesia for all oral surgeries?

    Not all oral surgeries need general anesthesia. Some can be done with local anesthetic “local” depending on what is being done. There is also surgeon and patient preference. READ MORE

  • Is general anesthesia safe during pregnancy?

    In general we try to avoid general anesthesia during pregnancy however we always weigh the risk of waiting on surgery to completing it. Saying that, general anesthesia is relatively safe after the 2nd trimester. READ MORE

  • Can I drive after MOHS surgery?

    If you receive any sedation you should have someone drive you home. There is no such thing as “a little drunk”. READ MORE

  • Is there a difference between local and regional anesthesia?

    Local anesthesia refers to using a local anesthetic like lidocaine or bupivacaine to inject around a structure to be cut which makes the area numb. Regional anesthesia involves injecting the same local anesthetic around a nerve or group of nerves to numb a large area that the nerve(s) supplies such as a interscalene brachial plexus block to numb a shoulder. READ MORE

  • Will I experience numbness after surgery?

    I’m assuming you are referring to general anesthesia where you are unconscious and not regional anesthesia where we numb a body area for surgery. General anesthesia should not cause any numbness. READ MORE

  • How can I reassure my son about general anesthesia?

    You can have him tour the operating room and have an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist explain how anesthesia works. Anesthesia is not like regular sleep. We control how deep it is and we control when someone “wakes up” after the surgery is over. READ MORE

  • What is "twilight" anesthesia used for?

    Anesthesia is on a spectrum. On the light side there is what we call MAC. You are relaxed and can respond to questions. Twilight anesthesia is just a bit deeper than this. You are more relaxed and feel like you are falling asleep. You may fall asleep and wake up several times but will not likely remember. READ MORE

  • Why are older people more sensitive to anesthesia?

    With existing memory problems, general anesthesia can temporarily make it worse for up to a year. This is more of a side effect of having anesthetic gas in this population of patients. Not everyone will be affected the same. READ MORE

  • Does anesthesia have an effect on my kidneys?

    General anesthesia by itself should not cause these problems. I would check to see if you had a foley catheter placed after you were anesthetized. READ MORE

  • Why is it necessary to see the anesthesiologist before surgery?

    Usually we go over medical history to see if anything may be an issue such as diabetes for sugar control, or uncontrolled high blood pressure. We also evaluate any risk factors such as heart disease or lung trouble such as COPD. We go over fasting, pain management depending on your surgery. READ MORE

  • Sore throat from anesthesia?

    Yes it’s common to have a sore throat after intubation (having an an endotracheal tube placed). The tube is placed between your vocal cords. A metal tool is used to place it. Both can cause a temporary sore throat. READ MORE

  • What will my anesthesiologist do if I'm nauseous?

    Yes, we have several preventative medications for nausea. If there is a history of this, speak with your anesthesiologist. READ MORE

He currently practices with Southwest Pain Management in Irving Texas where he holds an expertise in conservative pain management: fluoroscopic and ultrasound guided steroid injections and medications. He works with chiropractors, rheumatologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and spine surgeons to improve outcomes. Interventional pain management is a method which utilizes pain blocking techniques to help make day-to-day activities less difficult, and effectively restore quality of life for patients. Nerve blocks, joint injections, and epidurals may be used as part of the treatment process. Interventional pain management is generally used when pain is severe enough to interfere with daily activities, and other treatment types have not been successful in reducing pain including opioids. Regenerative medicine involves helping your own body to heal itself. This includes use of biologics such as PRP or platelet rich plasma derived from your own blood, your own bone marrow derived stem cells, amnion, and exosomes.
