Surgery can be a stressful time, not only for our patients but for their families as well. At East Memphis Anesthesia Services, we want to make sure that all questions and concerns about anesthesia are addressed prior to your surgical procedure. EMAS welcomes and encourages open communication between our providers and our patients. It is our belief that a well informed patient tends to have a better overall surgical experience.
For further information regarding the specialty of Anesthesiology as a whole, please visit the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) website. The “For Patients” section of the website has links and articles which describe the various types of anesthesia in detail as well as what to expect on the day of surgery.
