Most surgical procedures require some form of sedation and sometimes an anesthetic to allow you to be as pain free as possible during your actual procedure. When you have your surgery performed, we will have the support of a team comprised of anesthesiologists as well as nurse anesthetists that will be with you during your entire procedure.

There is a wide spectrum of different medications and agents that are used as a part of the sedation and pain control process. Certain cases will need different levels of anesthesia, and this may consist of a light sedation or may require a spinal anesthetic and then sometimes a deeper general anesthesia where you are completely asleep throughout the procedure.

The anesthesiologist for your particular surgery will talk to you in advance, usually the morning of the procedure, explain the various options, and recommend what type of anesthesia might be best for you.
