Anesthesia

Your anesthesia will be administered by a Certified Nurse Anesthetist. Below are the common types of anesthesia used at our facility:

Local Anesthesia – Numbs only the area being operated on and allows you to be awake
during the procedure.

Regional Anesthesia – A portion of the body is “blocked” from feeling pain while you remain awake.

General Anesthesia – You will be asleep throughout the procedure.

Monitored Anesthesia – You receive medication to make you comfortable during the procedure. This is often given in addition to local anesthesia.
