Our Anesthesia Team
Our goal as anesthesiologists at Millburn Surgical Center is to help shepherd our patients through their procedure, not only safely, but with a minimum of postoperative pain. Our concept of “safety” is continually evolving and improving.
As a center with a high percentage of orthopedic, hand and podiatry cases, we have developed a broad experience using ultrasound to administer nerve blocks for postoperative pain. This has resulted in an unparalleled safety record and success rate, with the majority of patients requiring minimal amounts of narcotic analgesics postoperatively as well as upon discharge.
With these goals in mind, we also take pride in tailoring each anesthetic to the surgeon’s specific needs, while taking into account the patient’s wishes and expectations. We are never satisfied with less than a great experience for everyone involved.
