Our office provides several minor procedures in our office that may avoid the need for hospitalization. This saves you time, money, and the need for general anesthesia. The procedures are performed in our Special Services Annex area. The procedures we do in the office are minor, done under local anesthetia, or IV sedation. IV sedation services are offered/performed by an experienced Board Certified/Eligible Anesthesiologist from Mobile Anesthesiologists®. Mobile Anesthesiologists® also provides our office with ICU/ER trained nurses that are critical care trained to assist our patients in their recovery.
These procedures may include:
Many physicians still do these procedures in the hospital but for the right patients we can safely do this in the office making the experience much less stressful and convenient for our patients by eliminating a hospital admission.
Our Patient Portal will allow meaningful patient engagement with a variety of tools, empowering our patients to better manage their health care.
*New patients must register with our office before using the patient portal.
