Healthpoint’s Anesthesia Care Team, which includes physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals, will work together to make sure your surgery and recovery are safe and successful.

Before surgery 

Our team provides pre-surgical consultations to discuss your anesthesia care. You will be asked about your medical history, health habits, and lifestyle, so that the physician anesthesiologist can work with other members of the Anesthesia Care Team to develop an anesthesia plan that’s safe and effective for you. 

During surgery 

While your surgeon is performing your procedure, your Anesthesia Care Team will be taking care of you. You will be monitored carefully throughout the surgery to make sure your breathing, heart rate, and other systems are normal and steady. While a nurse anesthetist or anesthesiologist assistant may be involved, a physician anesthesiologist supervises the monitoring and is always readily available in case you experience any complications while under anesthesia. 


the physician anesthesiologist will reverse the anesthesia medications and wake you up. You may experience some side effects from the anesthesia, such as nausea, chills, or vomiting, and the Anesthesia Care Team will assess how you feel and give you medications to make you feel better. The Anesthesia Care Team will develop a pain management plan to help you feel comfortable as you recover in the hospital and after you return home. 

Types of Anesthesia include: 

  • General 
  • Local 
  • Nerve Block/Plexus Block 
  • Neuroaxial (Epidural/Spinal/Combined Spinal-Epidural) 
  • Sedation 

Post-surgical pain treatment: 

  • Continuous local anesthesia infiltration via catheter directly into the surgical site, perineural or in the epidural site 
  • Patient-controlled analgesia, in which the patient gives himself the analgesics whenever demanded just by pressing a button 
  • Round the clock and/or as needed analgesics (either orally or intravenously)
