Anesthesia is an important part of your visit to Southwoods to help you relax and keep you comfortable during your surgery or procedure. Using the latest techniques, our team of highly qualified and experienced anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists will develop an individualized anesthesia management plan based on the type of procedure that is being performed. Each patient plays an important role with their anesthesia plan and your anesthesiologist will discuss your current health status and any special concerns that you may have. During your procedure, your anesthesia team will carefully monitor you at all times. After the procedure, your anesthesiologist will continue to evaluate your progress during the recovery phase to ensure that you remain comfortable. Attention to the individualized anesthesia needs of our patients is another part of our commitment to providing an exceptional patient experience.
A Southwoods Advantage
While some hospitals focus on cost cutting in anesthesia, Southwoods tailors each anesthetic to the patient for the best possible experience. Our technique, along with fast-acting medications, helps patients wake up faster and with less grogginess and nausea. In fact, nationally, 30% of all surgical patients experience a lingering anesthesia effect after surgery but, at Southwoods, it’s only 5%.
