Can I go to sleep for the procedure?

Our practice performs office-based anesthesia provided by our Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs).  Most of our patients are candidates for anesthesia in this setting, although in some cases patients cannot safely have anesthesia in our office due to medical problems.  The procedure will need to be performed awake with local anesthesia (numbing medicine) or in the hospital with anesthesia.  This can be discussed with the doctors to determine best option for your care.
