North Florida Anesthesia Consultants, P.A.

"My anesthesiologist took great care of me for my surgery. He explained everything very well, making me feel safe and comfortable. My recovery went better than expected."

Post-Operative Care

Immediately after your surgery, we will bring you to the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). You will typically be here for 30 minutes to an hour after your operation. This is where you wake up from anesthesia. We will also give you extra pain medication or medication for nausea if needed. Once you are awake, we will either get you to your hospital room or start preparing for your discharge.

Your discharge nurse will give you specific instructions for what to do at home after surgery and when to follow up with your surgeon.

Should you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. And please let us know about your experience by completing our patient satisfaction survey.
