About Your Anesthesia

You will meet your anesthesiologist on the day of your surgery and together you will choose the best type of anesthesia for you. Our mission is to see you safely through your surgery and to ensure that you will be able to return home in comfort following your procedure. Options for anesthesia include:

  • Local Anesthesia
    Your incision site is numbed with local anesthesia. You have the option of having nurse sedation with the local, which is having an intravenous line and having relaxing medication during the procedure.

  • Monitored Anesthetic Care (MAC)
    This type of anesthesia refers to sedation while under the care of the Anesthesia provider. Your incision site is numbed with local anesthesia. Many patients have no recall of the procedure.

  • General Anesthesia
    You will receive a mild sedative before leaving the preoperative holding area. You will receive intravenous and inhaled anesthetics to control pain and provide loss of awareness during the surgery.

  • Regional Anesthesia
    You receive a mild sedative through an intravenous line. A regional portion of your body which includes the surgical site is numbed with local anesthesia. Supplemental sedatives may be given to help you relax. This includes nerve blocks, spinal, and epidural anesthesia.

Preparation

  • A procedure room nurse will contact you the day prior to your procedure with the time to arrive and to answer any questions you may have.
  • If you are having any type of sedation, you will need to arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure.
  • Follow all of your preoperative instructions.
