We structure sedation and anesthetic protocols individually for each patient, emphasizing safety and freedom from fear factors. For all major surgeries, patients are monitored for blood pressure, oxygen saturation, heart rate and rhythm, and intravenous fluids are given via a catheter. Patients are always intubated and receive oxygen.

Local anesthesia is used adjunctively and pain control post operatively is given careful consideration as well.
