Anesthesia services at Mile Bluff Medical Center


When you arrive for your surgery or procedure, you will work with a certified registered nurse anesthetist to discuss the pain management option that is right for you based on your needs, physical condition or the surgical procedure you are having.

At Mile Bluff, three types of anesthesia is used.

  • General anesthesia produces a loss of sensation throughout the entire body.
  • Regional anesthesia produces a loss of sensation to a specific region of the body.
  • Local anesthesia produces a loss of sensation to a small, specific area of the body.

Monitored anesthesia care (MAC) is also available at Mile Bluff. This form of anesthesia is designed to provide different levels of sedation ranging from very little to very deep sedation. This can be tailored specifically to each procedure and patient's needs. Monitored by the anesthesia provider, MAC is used for non-surgical and simple surgical procedures, in order to provide the comfort necessary for patients to complete the procedures.

At Mile Bluff, we employee a team of certified registered nurse anesthetists. To learn more about the services they provide or to schedule a pre-surgery consultation, call 608-847-6161.
