Preparing For Surgery

The Department of Anesthesiology places an extreme focus on the care and comfort of our patients before, during, and after surgery. The following resources are provided by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), an educational, research and scientific association of physicians organized to raise and maintain the standards of the medical practice of anesthesiology and improve the care of the patient. If you or someone you know is preparing for surgery we encourage you to download and review this material and consult your physician and anesthesiologist should you have any questions.
