Caption: "This is the first study to show how effective these ultrasound-guided blocks can now be for breast cancer surgery. Even more importantly, we've been able to demonstrate that blocks help patients feel better and return to their normal levels of mental and physical functionality sooner after surgery," said Dr. Faraj Abdallah, an anesthesiologist at St. Michael's Hospital and lead author of the study.
