Pre-Registration - Orthopedic Surgery Registration
All anesthetics for total joint replacements at UM SJMC are performed by board certified physician anesthesiologists. There are several types of anesthesia that can be performed for these surgical procedures and this decision deserves careful consideration and discussion between you, your anesthesiologist, and your surgeon. Factors that may influence this decision include:
- Health and physical condition
- Past experiences with surgery and anesthesia
- Medications and medication allergies/reactions
- Benefits and risks of each type of anesthesia
- Preferences of the surgery/anesthesia team and you
Thank you for choosing University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center for your joint replacement surgery. We want to do everything we can to help you prepare for your surgery and to ensure a smooth recovery.
