Atlanta SurgiCenter is equipped with
state of the art anesthesia equipment and a team of Certified Nurse
Anesthetists (CRNA) to provide for your anesthesia needs.
Our Team of Nurse Anesthetists brings a total of more than 40 years experience
to our facility.
Atlanta SurgiCenter offers three types of anesthesia:
The patient is fully awake during procedure. Patients will receive Xanax
pre-op to assist with relaxation. The physician will administer a para-cervical
block to numb the cervix area during final dilation prior to surgery.
Remaining calm and following the instructions of the OR staff is essential
to a safe an uncomplicated procedure with local anesthesia. The CRNA
is in the OR during this procedure.
Local with IV Sedation
The CRNAIV will administer IV medications which put you to sleep for the entire procedure.
How do I choose the anesthesia that is right for me?
More often than not, patients can choose the type of anesthesia that
works best for them. However, there are some restrictions as to who can
and cannot receive General Anesthesia (completely asleep).
The restrictions that may come into play are based on your height, weight and/or
your medical history. It is very important that you are honest about
your medical history as decisions regarding the best care for you as
an individual are made based on this information.
