All procedures at The Hand Center are performed in collaboration with a highly qualified team of anesthesiology specialists, including board certified anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs). An anesthesiologist is a physician who specializes in administration of anesthesia and manages patients while under sedation. They play an important but rarely witnessed role in the operating theater.

The role of The Hand Center’s anesthesiologists begins with a thorough pre-operative evaluation of each patient and consultation with the surgical team. The team carefully coordinates the anesthetic needs of the patient, the patient’s response to the medication and the requirements of the surgery. During the procedure, the anesthesiologist provides pain control medication and supervises life-support functions. In addition, the anesthesiologist and / or CRNA provides continual medical assessment of the patient. Following surgery, the anesthesiologist ensures each patient fully emerges from the effects of the anesthesia and regains full consciousness.

New procedures are continually approved, offering patients the opportunity for faster recovery, reduced medical expense and improved outcomes.
