If this is your first appointment with Dr. Haté, please let him know if you would like to have your surgical procedure performed with the aide of intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. During your initial consultation, a thorough review of your medical history, as well as a clinical evaluation, will be performed to determine if you are a candidate for sedation and general anesthesia, and to determine which technique best fits your condition.
Patients Undergoing IV Sedation/General Anesthesia:
If you are being sedated for your surgery, you must bring a responsible adult with you who will accompany you to your appointment, wait in the waiting area throughout the procedure, and accompany you home. A parent or legal guardian must always accompany minor children.
