Anesthesiology: Operating at the Highest Standard of Care

Anesthesiology: Operating at the Highest Standard of Care

At Cayuga Medical Center and Surgicare, only board-certified anesthesiologists administer anesthesia. By way of contrast, many hospitals have systems whereby a single anesthesiologist may supervise a number of nurse anesthetists in different rooms who are administering patient anesthesia.

  To ensure maximum control and patient safety, we only recruit anesthesiologists who are interested in performing their own anesthesia.

  One anesthesiologist takes care of each patient from beginning to end, which increases safety and provides continuity for our patients.

  There are many choices regarding the specific anesthesia to be used. This decision is made jointly by the patient and anesthesiologist with input from the surgeon, so that the anesthesia choice is appropriate for that person and the anesthetic plan addresses the patient's concerns.
