Common Surgery procedures

Before your surgery or procedure, you will have an opportunity to meet and speak with your anesthesiologist, the doctor who will ensure your comfort. At that time, he or she will answer all your questions.

You will be given medication to keep you from feeling pain or discomfort. There are four types of anesthesia:

  • For minor surgery, local anesthesia will numb the surgical site
  • Regional anesthesia will numb one region of your body
  • Monitored Anesthesia Care will make you drowsy or put you into a light sleep
  • General anesthesia will put you completely to sleep
