Anesthesia in Queens | Department of Anesthesiology
The Department of Anesthesiology at Flushing Hospital provides patients with anesthesia services in the operating room; the ambulatory surgery unit; and the labor, delivery and recovery suites. The department also offers anesthesia assistance for specialized procedures such as invasive radiology procedures, electroconvulsive therapy, and MRI sedation. If you require any of these procedures, Flushing Hospital is an excellent place to receive anesthesia in Queens.
Our anesthesiologists use precise treatment protocols to ensure the absolute comfort and safety of every patient. Depending on the procedure, our Department of Anesthesiology is equipped to provide general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, or full sedation.
Each treatment is tailored to the needs of the patient. Before the procedure begins, the anesthesiologist coordinates with both the surgeon and the patient to develop an anesthetic plan based on the type of procedure being performed and the patient’s medical history. The goal is to minimize any risks while ensuring the smoothest outcome. Our anesthesiologists are also actively involved in minimizing postoperative pain, administering local anesthesia and intravenous pain medications as needed.
All of our anesthesiologists are licensed doctors with years of hands-on clinical experience. They are happy to answer questions and help patients to understand what they should expect when anesthesia is required.
