Do I always have the option of Spinal or Epidural anesthesia?

No. Some surgeries are not possible under these types of anesthesia. Other reasons that a patient may not be a candidate for these anesthetics include but not limited to patient refusal, bleeding disorders, certain infections, previous back surgery, morbid obesity or poor cooperation on part of the patient.
