Before you have any kind of surgical procedure performed in our office, we will require you to have a consultation with one of our surgeons. This provides the surgeon with an opportunity to evaluate your condition, take any necessary medical images (such as X-rays), and confirm that you are a good candidate for a safe and successful procedure. It also allows the surgeon a chance to talk with you about your treatment plan and answer any questions you might have.
There is a full range of topics that might be discussed during this appointment. For example, your surgeon will discuss some of the anesthesia and sedation options that are available to you, ensuring your comfort and safety during the procedure. You and your surgeon will also talk about the expected surgical results, aftercare, and recovery instructions.
It is important to us that your experience is positive and comfortable. Below, we have outlined a few of the options we offer to make that happen. If you have any questions, we recommend writing them down so that you can ask us during your consultation.
Not only does sedation help keep you out of physical pain, but it can also mitigate any anxiety you are feeling about your procedure. Our team offers the option of intravenous sedation, also referred to as IV sedation or IV anesthesia. This is one of the best ways to keep you comfortable, and will help to manage pain and anxiety throughout your surgery.
