As Emergency Physicians, we are adept at performing many different therapeutic and diagnostic procedures. Here are some procedures in which we are proficient:

  • Endotracheal intubation
  • Procedural sedation
  • Fracture reduction and splinting
  • Joint dislocation reduction
  • Chest tube placement
  • Central intravenous line placement
  • Paracentesis
  • Thoracentesis
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Laceration repair
  • Bedside ultrasound

Ultrasound use is becoming more prevalent in emergency department evaluation.  Our ultrasound machines can be brought to the patients bedside. This is especially helpful if the patient is too sick to leave the emergency room for other diagnostics.  Most of our physicians are credentialed in using bedside ultrasound to assist with placing IV’s and diagnosing numerous conditions.  Dr. Anton manages our ultrasound program.
