At the Institute of Facial and Oral Surgery, our office is equipped with the capability to offer the full range of anesthetic options including general anesthesia, intravenous (IV) sedation, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). We employ patient monitors in all surgical areas so that important vital signs are monitored by surgical personnel at all times.
All staff members are trained specifically to address the special needs of surgical patients and are also certified providers of basic life support to provide CPR if any emergencies may arise. Our surgeons are further certified to provide advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) and have trained specifically to deliver the full spectrum of anesthetic modalities.
The best way to reduce anxiety is to make certain you know what to expect during and after surgery. As with most anxiety-producing situations, the more you know, the less you have to be anxious about. Prior to surgery, Dr. Moose or Dr. Patel will review with you the type of anesthetic to be used, as well as the way you’re likely to feel during and after the operation. At the Institute of Facial and Oral Surgery, nothing is more important to us that the safety and comfort of our patients.
