I'm scared about Anesthesia - It is very natural to be nervous about anesthesia and surgery. Maybe it is even your first surgery or your first C-section, but it isn't ours, so rely on us to take good care of you. We will strive to make this your best experience. The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist will be with you the entire time during surgery monitoring your every heartbeat, every breath, and every step; we will be watching and adjusting your anesthesia to your individual needs. Our main goal is to ensure your safety and comfort. For your peace of mind, our CRNA's follow the established guidelines published by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
