Anesthesia For Outpatient Surgery & Procedures

Even outside of the hospital, anesthesiologists work with surgeons and other physicians to keep patients as comfortable and pain free as possible. Indiana University Health anesthesiologists have extensive experience reducing the discomfort of minor surgical and nonsurgical procedures at outpatient surgery centers, imaging centers and physician offices.

As medicine progresses, more minimally invasive treatment options allow you to receive care outside of the hospital and go home the same day. Though these procedures may involve few or no incisions and take an hour or less, they may still cause pain, discomfort or anxiety that can be eased by anesthesia. Our expert physicians focus on your comfort and safety throughout your procedure to ensure you have the best experience possible.
