Surgery Center Anesthesia Services

Comprehensive Anesthesia for Surgical Procedures

We provide a complete range of anesthesia services, spanning from mild sedation to general anesthesia, administered by highly skilled CRNAs with extensive experience.

Our CRNAs have a wealth of experience in high-pressure, fast-paced environments and understand the importance of seamless collaboration with your surgical center team. Their extensive background gives them the ability to adapt to the dynamic nature of surgical procedures, ensuring that anesthesia administration remains smooth and efficient. Our CRNAs not only prioritize patient safety but also understand the significance of collaborative teamwork, enhancing the overall surgical experience for both patients and surgical center staff.

All our anesthesia providers have significant experience and maintain all certifications and licensure required by Minnesota and Wisconsin hospitals to practice anesthesia.

Types of Anesthesia We Offer

  • Regional Anesthesia
  • Conscious Sedation
  • Deep Sedation
  • General Anesthesia

Regional Anesthesia

Regional anesthesia involves an injection of local anesthetic near a cluster of nerves to cause loss of sensation in a specific area of the body. The patient may remain awake or may be given an additional sedative to help make it a comfortable experience. This type of anesthesia can be done to block sensation during surgery or can be done to provide post-op pain relief at the surgical site.

General Anesthesia

Under general anesthesia, patients are in a “deeper sleep” and may require a breathing device to keep them safe during their procedure. During the procedure, they will remain asleep and have no sensation throughout their body.

Conscious Sedation

With conscious sedation, your patient will be sleepy but may be able to wake up with light stimulation.

Deep Sedation

When under deep sedation, sometimes called Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC), your patients will be asleep and comfortable during a procedure. However, they may still respond to painful stimuli. Patients under deep sedation breathe independently under close watch by one of our CRNAs.

Personalized Care for Your Patients

Patients may have one or a combination of two or more different types of anesthesia. For example, a CRNA may administer regional anesthesia in conjunction with deep sedation. Your anesthesia provider will help your patients choose the best option available on the day of surgery. 

Modern anesthesia is as safe as it has ever been. When you work with Twin Anesthesia, a dedicated CRNA will be with your patients before, during, and after surgery. We follow strict ASA guidelines regarding monitoring and your patients’ anesthesia care. Blood pressure, oxygen levels, heart rhythm, and the entire patient’s well-being is monitored closely throughout the entire procedure. After surgery, as your patient wakes up from anesthesia, we will remain by their side to ensure they are comfortable and safe.
