Anesthesiologists are the doctors who provide pain relief during surgery and recovery. They focus on maintaining your vital life functions, such as breathing, heart rate and body temperature as well as your comfort. How they care for you depends on the nature of your procedure. General anesthesia affects your whole body. Regional anesthesia numbs or blocks the feeling in part of your body. Sedation relaxes you and reduces pain without “putting you under.”
Our anesthesia specialists are dedicated to your comfort. They focus on finding the most effective approach with the lowest risks to maximize your safety and well-being.
