Cases consist of ortho (sports, hand, joint replacement, spine), neuro spine, urology, gynecology, general surgery, plastic surgery, podiatry, GI, pain management requiring general anesthesia. Acute pain service follows the large number of regional blocks and medical management of post-operative pain in our post-surgical patients. Due to a high volume of regional anesthesia (neuroaxial and ultrasound guided peripheral nerve blocks) experience in that area, or willingness to learn, is necessary. Currently, we do cases at both the hospital and outpatient ambulatory surgery center. Call is shared between two anesthesiologists and consists of finishing the last room and being available for the rare emergency. Compensation follows the Grace physician model - an initial guarantee with the ability to be compensated for all billings above guarantee, less expenses. If every other weekend call is an issue, less call with a lower guarantee can be negotiated.
