Your Surgery


Prior to your surgery, you may be required to undergo pre-admission testing which includes a medical history and physical and possibly lab work. In some cases your surgeon may request additional testing. Before your scheduled surgery date, a Bergen Anesthesia physician will review your chart and your pre-admission testing results. If there are any questions or concerns a physician from our staff will contact you directly.

The day before your surgery you will be asked to fast (abstain from eating and drinking any fluids including water) after midnight. You may continue to take certain medications the day of your surgery with a small sip of water. Please confirm with your surgeon the medications that you should continue to take.

Day of Surgery

At Bergen Anesthesia, we understand having a surgical procedure is a stressful time for you and your family. Our team will provide you with compassionate, state of the art anesthesia services.

On the day of your surgery, the anesthesiologist caring for you will meet you in the pre-operation holding area to review your medical history and discuss your plan of care. We will ensure that you are fully prepared for your procedure prior to being transported to the operating room.

After Surgery

After surgery you will recover in a Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). At this point, you will be cared for by a highly skilled, Magnet Award winning registered nurse who will continue to monitor your vitals and assess your post- surgical needs.

Your post-anesthesia recovery period will vary depending on the method of anesthesia used.
