Anesthesia Services

At our affiliated surgery centers, we prioritize your well-being from start to finish. When it comes to surgery, we understand that peace of mind is crucial. That's why we offer top-notch anesthesia services to ensure you have a comfortable experience.

Anesthesia involves the use of medications to induce a controlled state of unconsciousness, immobility, and pain relief during surgical procedures. Different types of anesthesia may be employed based on the nature of the surgery and the patient's health.

The anesthesia services at North Pointe Surgery Center (in Lancaster and Lebanon) as well as Lancaster Orthopedic Group Surgery Center include:

  • General Anesthesia: Renders the patient unconscious for extensive surgeries.
  • Regional Anesthesia: Numbs specific body regions using local anesthetics.
  • Peripheral Nerve Blocks: Target nerves for localized pain relief.
  • Spinal Anesthesia: Numbs the lower body and is common for lower extremity surgeries.
  • Epidural Anesthesia: Provides pain relief for surgeries in the lower abdomen or extremities.
  • Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC) or Sedation: Induces conscious sedation for comfort.
  • Local Anesthesia: Directly numbs the surgical site for minor procedures.

The choice of anesthesia depends on factors such as surgery type, patient health, and surgeon preferences, with the goal of ensuring patient comfort and safety. Consultation with your anesthesia team and your surgeon helps determine the most suitable approach for your specific procedure.
