HOME PAGE / ANESTHESIA

You can be provided with your choice of anesthesia by our board certified anesthesiologists. Some types of anesthesia are procedure dependant.

General Anesthesia: a reversible state of unconsciousness, produced by anesthetic agents, with absence of pain sensation over the entire body and a greater or lesser degree of muscular relaxation.

Block Anesthesia: A local anesthetic that is injected around a nerve or into the spine, preventing pain messages traveling along that nerve pathway from reaching the brain. Epidural Anesthesia: an anesthetic is injected into a small area surrounding the spinal cord (the epidural space) to block pain nerve impulses from the lower half of the body; Spinal Anesthesia: is a form of local, or more specifically regional, anaesthesia involving injection of a local anaesthetic into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

IV Sedation: Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC), also known as IV Sedation or Twilight Anesthesia, is a safe and effective method of anesthesia for procedures requiring relaxation but not unconsciousness.
