For maximum patient comfort, we offer intravenous (I.V.) sedation for various procedures. I.V. is ideal if the patient is nervous and prefers a completely comfortable, stress-free surgery. We induce the patient into anesthesia at the beginning of the process and recovery happens shortly after the procedure has been completed.
I.V. sedation will require the patient to have nothing to eat or drink 8 hours prior to the operation, and someone must escort the person in and out of the office on the day of surgery, making sure the patient arrives home safely.
