Patient Education Brochures
It’s helpful for patients and family members to understand the impact of anesthesia before, during and after a surgical procedure. Find out more about anesthesia and how our unique team care approach contributes to a successful patient experience.

Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and total care of the surgical patient, before, during, and after surgery. The following brochures provide patients with important information on anesthesia and the role Board-Eligible and Board-Certified Physician Anesthesiologists or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) play before, during and after surgery. Children and anesthesia, childbirth and anesthesia, pain management, and how to stop smoking prior to surgery are just a few of the topics covered.
