FAQs: Day of Your Surgery

What kind of anesthesia will I have?

It depends on the procedure you are having. Your anesthesiologist will discuss the type of sedation that is appropriate for your surgery. 

How will my pain be controlled during my surgery?

You will speak to an anesthesiologist before your surgery about how your pain will be controlled. Don’t be afraid to discuss any concerns you have during this time. Managing your pain is a high priority for us. We will be consistently monitoring your pain levels from before your surgery through your return home, and we are here to provide any assistance as needed to manage your pain as much as possible.
