Why choose to have your surgery at Upland Hills Health?

1. We provide a lower-stress environment. We concentrate on making sure you understand your procedure before its planned, and our compassionate staff walks you through each step on the day of your procedure. While our surgery department is a busy place, you won’t feel rushed as you prep and recover.

2. We provide a unique, comfortable anesthesia. Because we have a team of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) who are highly trained and skilled in airway management, we are able to use anesthesia procedures that allow you to sleep deeply during your procedure and wake up more refreshed, with little to no chance of nausea. Our CRNAs monitor you during your surgery, adjusting your medication as needed to ensure your comfort during your procedure and your waking experience.

Whether your surgery was planned or unexpected, our pre-op staff will keep you informed, so that you know what to expect before, during and after surgery. Knowing that you are in expert, caring hands helps take the stress out of surgery and gets you on the road to a speedy recovery.

Brad Wagner, CRNA, explains the approach we take to anesthesia, which reduces the need for opioid pain medications. Listen to the episode of Inspire Health.
