Anesthesia is an important part of your out-patient surgery at Iowa City ASC. Anesthesiologists are involved in your care before, during and after surgery. Their main objective is to provide comfort and safety during your surgical procedures. They deliver medications and/or non-pharmacologic adjuncts (therapy that does not involve the use of drugs), to help decrease your pain sensation to part or the entire part of your body; induce sedation; or induce full or partial amnesia so that patient doesn’t perceive and/or remember what is going on around them during their procedure.
Our team of Anesthesiologists will monitor your anesthesia process carefully to help you have the best outcomes during your surgical procedure at Iowa City ASC.
