“Have You Gone Loco? Locoregional Analgesic Techniques to Minimize Opiate Usage”
Dr. Alexander Hawley, DVM, MS, DACVAA
Dr. Hawley joined The Sams Clinic in 2009. As the on-staff anesthesiologist, he vigilantly monitors patients before, during, and after surgery to ensure their well-being and comfort. He wants pets to be free of anxiety and pain yet alert after surgery.
This goal is accomplished by using a progressive, multi-modal approach, combining local and regional techniques with lower doses of systemic medications. In addition, as the director of the Pain
Management Clinic, Dr. Hawley supplements more conventional protocols with both state-of-the-art allopathic therapies and acupuncture.
After obtaining his doctorate in veterinary medicine from Colorado State University in 2005, Dr. Hawley went on to do a year long internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Kansas State University, followed by a three-year residency in anesthesiology at Tufts University. He also holds a master’s degree in anatomy and is a certified acupuncturist.
