A majority of surgical patients today will arrive to the hospital or surgical center on the day of their surgery. The first opportunity you will have to meet your anesthesiologist will, most likely, be just prior to surgery. The information here is intended to help you prepare for your experience and decrease the concerns you may have about the anesthetic care you receive.

We encourage you to ask your anesthesiologist questions about the anesthesia. We want to provide you with the safest possible anesthesia while also keeping you comfortable and help you on the road to a quick recovery. Our goal is to have flexible and individualized service that is in accordance with the most up-to-date concepts in anesthesia care.

More specific information about the various types of anesthesia we provide, some of which may apply to your procedure, is available in the links to the right. Downloadable flyers are also available below.
