The anesthesia that we offer is safe, effective and short acting. You will be asleep from 5-10 minutes depending on the procedure. There is always some degree of risk with any surgery. Serious complications with deep sedation are extremely rare in our facilities. Most complications occur when a patient has ingested food or liquid within 8 hours of surgery. Tell your counselor if you have had prior complications with anesthesia or if you have had anything to eat or drink within 8 hours prior to your surgery.
