What to Expect During Your Procedure

Prior to the procedure you will be asked to sign a consent form granting the doctor permission to perform sedation and the endoscopy or procedure. Once you are in the Pre-op holding area an IV will be started. You will then go into the procedure room where monitors will be placed, then the doctor will give you medication through a vein to make you relaxed and sleepy. The procedure is usually well tolerated and rarely causes pain or discomfort. Many patients even fall asleep during the examination. VISIT OUR FLOOR PLAN

Our staff will take great lengths to ensure that sedation is adequate and that discomfort during the procedure is minimal. With the newer medications that are used for sedation, most patients have no pain and very little recall of the procedure. In some instances a CRNA may be involved in your care.
