It is known that ultrasound can be useful to assist placement of epidural analgesia among pregnant women.extenseve research on the usefulness of ultrasound imaging to facilitate the placement of neuraxial anesthesia in pregnant have been done.The potential advantages of successful placement among non-pregnant patients include increases the safety and comfort.
In our study all patients schedueld to receive an nueraxial anesthesia for non-obstetric surgery will be included.The investigator will request permission from the Helsinki committee of hadassah university hospital.Patients will be requesting for surgery and will be randomized to one of two study groups.One group will be passed neuraxial anesthesia on the standart technique and the secound group will be passed neuraxial anesthesia with the help of ultrasound.

Experimental: ultrasound ,without ultrasound
ultrasound group will be passed the neuraxial anesthesia with ultrasound,the secoud group will be passed the neuraxial anesthesia without ultrasound .
Device: ultrasound probe
we will compare two technique of neuraxial anesthesia;one group will be passed neuraxial anesthesia with the intervention the ultrasound and the other group without the intervention of the ultrasound.
- Number of epidural attempts made to succeed for placing epidural needle and catheter in epidural space [ Time Frame: one year ]Each attempt at placing epidural needle in epidural space will be recorded. Total number of attempts will be recorded
- patient satisfaction as measured by VAS (0=not satisfied, 10 = most satisfied) [ Time Frame: one year ]
