In keeping with our commitment to your safety and comfort, we provide local anesthetic, Nitrous Oxide, I.V. sedation, general anesthetic and a range of sedation options at our practice serving Scottsdale, Avondale, and the greater Phoenix area.
Most people who come to our office come here for surgical procedures. When
you talk about surgery, everyone has some anxiety. One of the areas that we
really focus on is our ability to get patients through the surgery in the
most comfortable and safe way as possible.
Therefore we focused on anesthesia options, which range anywhere from
general anesthesia with a board certified anesthesiologist who will come to
our office. We have IV sedation, which we've used very frequently. It's an
excellent, very safe, and comfortable way to perform most surgeries. We
also have nitrous oxide sedation, which is less of a sedation than IV
sedation, but yet relaxes patients and makes them feel quite comfortable,
and there's local anesthesia.
So, when we decide upon performing a procedure, the patient is asked what
type of anesthesia they want and we go through each of the various options
and they select the option that's best for them. Not everyone's the same.
Some people have more anxiety about a procedure than others, and so they're
ultimately the ones that make the decision. But we have everything
available to them to ensure their safety and their comfort.
With medications that we have today, most patients don't remember a thing
about the surgery. They'll come in, we're talking with them, we start the
IV, the medicine goes in, and many people will not even believe we started
the procedure. That's exactly how they want it, and we're already finished.
