Anesthesia Services

There are many types of anesthesia available to help make patients comfortable during surgery or a medical procedure. Because each person is unique, your anesthesiologist, in consultation with you, will individually tailor the treatment approach for your specific needs. Factors affecting the particular technique or approach include the type of surgery/procedure being performed, the patient’s age, physical status, lab results and medical history as well as the requirements of the surgeon.
