The first step is proper anesthesia. There are now many techniques that allow us to perform even complex procedures with little or no discomfort. To control pain and anxiety, the following could be used:
- Local anaesthesia to numb the surgical site.
- Intravenous sedation to relax you.
Dr. Riendeau or Dr. Bonin will decide which anaesthesia is best for you.
Once the surgery has been carried out, you can relax while being monitored by either Dr. Riendeau or Dr. Bonin or his/her assistant, who will decide when you can leave the clinic with the person who escorted you. You will be given written post-op instructions.
