The Department of Anesthesia is comprised of highly experienced and trained physicians that are experts in pain management and sedation. They are an important part of the clinical team and work with your physician or surgeon in managing your care.
If you are a surgical patient, prior to your scheduled operation a physician from the Department of Anesthesiology will visit you in your room to discuss the anesthesia that you will receive.
The anesthesiologist will recommend the most suitable form of anesthesia based on an evaluation of your medical history and the contemplated procedure.
Any and all questions relating to your medical status and intended procedure can be answered at that time.
