Our expert anesthesiologists manage sedation and pain during inpatient and outpatient procedures. Anesthesia numbs the designated area to prevent pain or movement during surgery. The amount of anesthesia administered may range from drowsiness to a complete loss of consciousness. Depending on the type of surgery scheduled to meet your needs, you may have any of the following administered:
- General anesthesia—Major operations, like total hip placement, require complete loss of consciousness, which is administered through an intravenous (IV) injection or with a mask.
- IV sedation—Also known as monitored anesthesia or twilight sleep, minor procedures may require conscious sedation, which means you will remain awake but relaxed. Patients in deep sedation will likely not remember the surgery, but patients with minimal sedation may only feel drowsy.
- Regional anesthesia—This type of anesthesia numbs an entire area of the body, such as an epidural during abdominal surgery. Usually, the patient will be awake but will be unable to feel any sensation.
- Local anesthesia—This type of anesthesia numbs a small portion of the body for procedures like middle ear surgery for recurring ear infections. Similar to regional anesthesia, patients are unable to feel pain.
Visiting our surgery center
Patients and visitors can find Methodist Hospital | Ambulatory Surgery off of Huebner Road, in the Huebner Medical Center. We are located in suite 100 on the first floor where our admissions desk staff will check you in. Free parking is available in the lot outside the building.
Appointments for all surgeries and procedures are coordinated between your physician's office and the specialists at Methodist Hospital | Ambulatory Surgery. Your referring doctor will discuss any dietary restrictions, preoperative preparation and postoperative care.
We offer open visitation hours so you can visit your loved one as often as you wish. We ask that no more than two to four people are in the patient's room at a time. Some of our patient recovery rooms have chairs that pull out into a bed or recliner for overnight visitors. However, visitation is at the attending nurse's discretion to ensure an environment that prioritizes a rapid recovery, free from distraction.
All doors will be locked before 5 a.m. and after 6 p.m., so we request that visitors arriving or exiting during those times use the ER entrance. Visitors entering through the ER will see a phone with instructions to call the patient's attending nurses. Staff will meet the visitors and guide them to the patient's recovery room.
