General Anesthesia

We provide general anesthesia for patients that are very nervous or need to have a difficult procedure completed. In these situations a deeper level of anesthesia is necessary. Dr. Shafqat works with Edward Kane, MD, a board certified anesthesiologist.

Dr. Kane comes to our office several times a month to provide anesthesia services. We have state of the art anesthesia and monitoring equipment that is serviced quarterly. Dr. Shafqat believes that by having a separate anesthesiologist he is able to provide general anesthesia for his patients in a safe and comfortable setting.

Patients that are under general anesthesia feel nothing, and are unaware that any time has passed during the procedure. For the patient under general anesthesia, it seems as though they blink and the procedure is over.
