New Jersey Anesthesia Professionals is an anesthesia services organization that is proud to provide anesthesia care to the wonderful patients of New Jersey. We are owned and operated by an anesthesiologist with quality patient care as our priority. We have over two dozen board-certified anesthesiologists in our organization. Many have additional sub-specialty training.
Having surgery or a procedure under anesthesia is a stressful experience for most patients. The anesthesiologist is there to guide you safely through the procedure and ensure that you are free of pain during the procedure and as comfortable as possible during the recovery period.
The type of anesthesia you receive depends on the type of surgery or procedure you are going to have. General anesthesia typically involves being unconscious and having a ventilator breath for you through a breathing tube. The tube may also be used to deliver anesthesia gases to keep you asleep. In addition, an IV delivers narcotics, muscle relaxants, and other medications during the surgery or procedure.
MAC anesthesia stands for monitored anesthesia care. Although it can have various meanings, it typically involves sedation through an IV for procedures that do not require the depth of general anesthesia. Oxygen is typically delivered through a face mask or nasal cannula.
Regional anesthesia involves injecting local anesthetic in relative proximity to a nerve or cluster of nerves. This can be performed using anatomic landmarks or with a nerve stimulator to assess the distance of the tip of the needle from the nerve(s). Recently, ultrasound has emerged as an imaging modality to assist with needle guidance during regional anesthesia. Common types of regional anesthesia include brachial plexus block for shoulder surgery and axillary block for hand and wrist surgery.
Local anesthesia is the injection of local anesthetic under the skin to numb a superficial area for excision or IV insertion. Local anesthesia is often used to take a skin biopsy by a dermatologist.
Whatever type of anesthesia your surgery or procedure requires, our anesthesiologists will be there to guide you safely through the procedure and administer the anesthesia safely.
Our services are billed separately from the procedure and claims are typically sent to your insurer. If you have any questions about anesthesia billing, we would be glad to speak to you at your convenience.
