Anesthesia

Patient Comfort and Safety

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are the ONLY surgical specialty that undergoes rigorous advanced training in anesthesia, and we are the only specialty licensed to render anesthesia in the office.

The majority of patients receive IV anesthesia. IV anesthesia is used to deliver either light or deep sedation to our patients. Patients have no recollection of their surgery. Light sedation allows patients to be in a calm, relaxed state.

IV anesthesia is very safe, short acting and has few side effects. Unlike "gas", patients remain asleep for only a minute or two following the completion of their surgery and have little or no memory of the procedure. Patients are fully awake usually within 5 minutes following their surgery.

You and the doctor will determine what is best suited to you during the consultation visit. 

Pediatric Anesthesia

Dr. Orden has over 30 years of experience in Pediatric Anesthesia. He trained in pediatric anesthesiology at the University of Illinois Medical Center, and has lectured at the national AAOMS meeting on this topic. We maintain every single monitoring and safety protocol and standard used in every hospital operating room. Our record of safety is unparalled and is our primary concern. Dr. Orden will discuss the anesthesia options best suited to your child and his/her needs. If needed select patients can be treated by the pediatric anesthesiolists at Newton-Wellesley hospital.

What types of Agents are Used?

We use a combination of agents for your anesthesia. In most cases you will receive a combination of Fentanyl, Versed, Brevital and other agents that are used to diminish swelling or control anxiety or pain. For pediatric or adults who require "gas", we use Sevoflurane in combination with other agents.

Safety and Emergencies

Our office takes safety first. The office is equipped just like a hospital OR. The doctor, his staff, and office all recieve inspections and certification in anesthesia from the Comm. of Mass. We have exactly the same safety equipment and protocols as any hospital operating room. We have the latest computerized monitoring equipment. This includes oxygen saturation, end-tidal CO2, EKG, blood pressure, pulse rate, ventilation rate. We have safely treated literally tens of thousands of pediatric and adult anesthetic cases in our office
