Managing Pain and Comfort With a Highly Skilled Team

Some of the procedures recommended by your doctor may require the use of anesthesia to make sure you’re comfortable. Our team of experienced anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists will keep a close eye on you to make sure that every detail is watched closely — from formulating a plan before surgery to monitoring your body’s functions during surgery to helping you recover from after-effects following your procedure.

Types of Anesthesia

There are three categories of anesthesia:

  • In general anesthesia, you are unconscious and have no awareness or sensations
  • In regional anesthesia, your anesthesiologist makes an injection near a cluster of nerves to numb the area of your body requiring surgery; you may remain awake or be given a sedative
  • In local anesthesia, the anesthetic drug is injected to the area of your body requiring the procedure
