What kind of anesthesia will be used? Are there possible side effects or risks? Will I meet with the anesthesiologist in advance? Will he or she know my needs and allergies?

Anesthesia approaches vary and include general sedation and spinal anesthesia. An anesthesiologist will meet with you the day of surgery. Talk to your anesthesiologist about any concerns you have or problems you have had with anesthesia. Your medication list and allergies are updated in our system when you have Preadmission Testing but will again be reviewed by the anesthesiologist.
