Anesthesia reno nevada reno asc reno ambulatory surgery center

Local anesthesiology groups have provided service to the Reno area for several decades and all have physicians with several years of specialty training in anesthesiology following medical school.


After registering with the front desk, a nurse will escort you to the pre-operative area. After changing clothes into a patient gown and robe, a short medical history will be taken and reviewed by a physician anesthesiologist. During that time, the anesthesiologist will discuss with you the alternative anesthesia methods appropriate to your surgery or procedure. 


Several links are provided below for additional information on ambulatory anesthesia, children and anesthesia, seniors and anesthesia, anesthesia and herbal supplements and pain management. This information is provided through the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Society of Ambulatory Anesthesiologists. The information contained through these links is in general terms. You are encouraged to discuss any questions or concerns with your physician or anesthesia provider on the day of the procedure.
