The : The procedure can be done with an epidural or general anesthesia. If your health permits, there should be little or no difference in anesthetic risk. With regards to your spine, its curvature will usually not affect the effectiveness of the epidural only the difficulty of its insertion. By the way, it is unlikely your curvature is due to a pregnancy. It is most likely congenital. Most people have some asymmetrical curvature of the spine. Although it may not be noticeable or problematic. Discuss the anesthetic with the anesthesiologist that will be there for the procedure since it is usually best(safer/better results) to do what he feels the most comfortable doing. Good luck and i hope this helps. ...Read more

If you have had problems with placement in the past (curved spine) there are other techniques that can be used. Talk with your anesthesiologist about what technique is best for you. ...Read more
