Marie, my friend gave birth to a beautiful boy this week and she said that the anesthetist performed spinal anesthesia to quickly soothe her pain during delivery. What is spinal anesthesia? Thank you for your time, Rachelle

Spinal anesthesia is very similar to an epidural. The technique is very similar, but the injection site is a bit different, as well as the purpose. Please read Epidural or Spinal Anesthesia for more information.
