Prior to your surgery, you will be seen by one of our highly trained anesthesiologists. They will review your medical history and perform a brief physical exam. At that time, the anesthesiologist will discuss with you the options you have for anesthesia. Based on your history, physical exam, type of surgery, and other factors, your anesthesiologist may suggest one particular anesthetic technique. The different anesthesia techniques include: general anesthesia, spinal or epidural anesthesia, or monitored anesthesia care. In addition to these types of anesthesia, your anesthesiologist may discuss different options you have for pain control following surgery.
Schneck anesthesiologists also assist with pain control during childbirth. Based on your history, physical exam, type of delivery, and other factors, your anesthesiologist will discuss your options and may suggest one particular obstetric anesthetic technique.
