Medical hypnosis assists with surgery and medical procedures
Cancer Newsline - 01/21/2013
Hypnosis is an artificially produced state of consciousness which allows for greater responsiveness to suggestion. Ian Lipski M.D., associate professor in Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at MD Anderson Cancer Center, uses medical hypnosis to help patients manage cancer treatment side effects like anxiety, fear and pain. Medical hypnosis shifts the focus of power away from the medical staff and gives the patient control over his/her cognizance. Learn how Dr. Lipski helps patients at MD Anderson prepare for surgery and medical procedures by using medical hypnosis.
