Our experienced anesthesia specialists will help to ensure that your treatment runs safely and successfully. They work to guarantee a pain-free procedure, using the following methods:
The most commonly used form of anesthesia is the local anesthetic, which numbs only the treated area. With today’s advanced technology and the use of topical sprays, even the injection is virtually painless.
Twilight Sleep (Conscious Sedation)
For twilight sleep, our anesthesia specialists will place the patient into a state of deep relaxation. The patient remains conscious and responsive but feels no pain during the procedure. His or her memory and perception of time are also clouded by the anesthetic. Used in combination with a local anesthetic, this method relieves all tension in the treated area during the procedure.
Should twilight sleep not be able to completely eliminate the fear of surgery or provide full painlessness, our anesthetists will employ a general anesthetic. Today’s modern and minimally aggressive methods are safe and tolerable for the body. With the aid of narcotic medication and computer-controlled anesthesia delivery, the patient is placed in a reliable dormant state.
