Patient Information

Today, a great majority of our patients arrive at the hospital on the same day of surgery instead of being admitted the night before as was once customary. Patients usually do not meet their anesthesiologist until just prior to surgery. As a result we find that patients are often more anxious about their anesthetic course than the actual surgery itself. Hopefully the following information will help to decrease your concerns. Please feel free to ask your anesthesiologist any question regarding anesthesia prior to proceeding to the operation room. Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible before, during and after surgery. We strive to provide complete, individualized and flexible anesthesia services, using the most up-to-date concepts of anesthesia care.

Important to the safe conduct of any anesthetic is an accurate medical history. This will be reviewed with you by your anesthesiologist. Medications (including herbals) which you are taking as well as allergies are important. Other surgical experiences and your general medical background play a part in planning your pending anesthesia.
