Following is a description of your anesthesia care as it will be provided at the Berks Urologic Surgery Center.

Prior to your surgery, you will receive a telephone call from one of the Surgery Center nurses to go over your medical history and previous surgeries. At this time, the nurse will inform you if you need an EKG or any lab testing. You will also receive instructions about eating or drinking and any medications that should be taken on the morning of your operation.

If you have any questions about your instructions, please contact the Surgery Center directly by calling 610-685-1044.

On the day of surgery, you will report to the receptionist at the Surgery Center. You will be registered as a patient and escorted to the pre-operative area.

In the pre-operative area, you will be interviewed by a Surgery Center nurse and your anesthesiologist. The anesthesiologist will also perform a limited physical exam and discuss the anesthesia plan. Before leaving the pre-operative area, we will start an IV.

A staff nurse will then escort you to the operating room.

Here, EKG and blood pressure monitors will be placed on your chest and arm, as well as a pulse oximeter on your finger to measure your blood oxygen level. Your anesthesia will then begin.

For more information about types of anesthesia, please click about anesthesia.

After your procedure, you will be moved to the post-anesthesia care area where specially trained nurses will monitor your recovery and be responsive to your post-operative needs .

When you are fully awake, you will be discharged home.

We attempt to reach each of our patients by telephone in the day or two following your procedure to check on your condition.
