Overview of Anesthesiology
When you undergo a procedure requiring anesthesiology, you will need the expertise of an anesthesiologist on the medical staff. These specialists are trained in the safe delivery and management of medications that put you to sleep temporarily and help manage your discomfort during recovery. Working alongside a surgeon, an anesthesiologist is uniquely prepared to care for you – whether it is a routine surgery like a tonsillectomy or a procedure such as tumor removal.
Anesthesiology is used for:
- Minimally invasive procedures
- Traditional procedures
- Some dental procedures
- Pain management
Equipment and dosages are carefully chosen by the anesthesiologist. They are skilled in the delivery and management of medications to ensure you are properly sedated during your operation and are comfortable afterwards.
