We understand the fears and anxiety that can accompany thoughts about having surgery. We hear them from our patients every day- you might be excited about the future results that will come from your surgery, but nervous about the “what if’s” that creep into your mind.
Rest assured- you are in good hands with us. Modern surgery and anesthesia techniques are extremely safe. While not entirely risk free, we do everything possible to minimize risk and keep you safe.
Our anesthesia providers are experienced and highly skilled. We will stay with you and ensure your safety and comfort throughout your surgery. Our standards are high, and we only work in surgery centers and with surgeons who reflect our high standards of both safety and quality.
If you have chosen a surgeon or surgery center who has partnered with us, you can be assured that the highest standards of safety and professionalism are being met. We don’t compromise for any reason, your safety is too important to us.
If you have had any previous medical history, you may be asked to visit your primary care physician for a checkup and surgical clearance prior to surgery. You may be asked to get lab work or special testing to ensure your safety. This is usually just a precaution but is necessary to help us make sure you are kept as safe as possible. On the day of surgery your anesthesia provider will talk with you about your health, any medications you may take, previous experiences with anesthesia and will recommend the best anesthesia plan for you.
