FAQ
How are Anesthesiologists chosen?

Our all MD group, employs only Board Certified Anesthesiologists with office-based Anesthesia experience. Surgeons and Patients can always request to speak with their Anesthesiologists before the day of surgery.

Who brings anesthesia equipment?

We can provide all anesthesia equipment, drugs and supplies needed for your practice, at reduced cost. We keep inventory of all items and take responsibility for supply-side management allowing you and your team to focus on clinical responsibilities.

 

Do you provide Accreditation support?

For surgeons planning to build a new facility we can assist in completion of the accreditation application and serve as a liason between the facility and the accrediting agency. For accredited facilities we provide ongoing inspections to ensure continued compliance.

What type of anesthesia is provided?

We can provide conscious "twilight" sedation, general inhalation anesthesia, and total intravenous general anesthesia (TIVA).

 

Which type of anesthesia is best?

The anesthesia plan depends on the type of procedure, length of care, and patient's current state of health, and required surgical conditions. The anesthesia plan is discussed with the surgeon and patient before each procedure.

Do patients experience nausea?

We use an aggressive multimodal approach to prevent occurence of nausea. 

How long is recovery from anesthesia?

Depending on the type of anesthesia used patients can recover within minutes after administration is stopped.
