Iris Orbuch, MD 


Notes from Surgeon:  These patients all have chronic pain.  They are given valium in pre-op and hydrated with IV fluids as well.  They have all had bowel preps so they tend to be fluid deficient.  

Pre-op: surgeon starts gabapentin and vaginal valium/baclofen cream a month or two before surgery


  1. OG tube always because ports are high

  2. IV poles as far back towards Anesthesiologist as possible - Robotic Case

  3. Use a cushioned face mask

  4. Have methylene Blue 5mg ready to give at beginning of case - this is for the visualization of the Ureter

  5. Pain control: NO TORADOL

  6. Requests TAP Block from anesthesiologist at end of case
