Pain Free Abortions
We offer a variety of methods for pain management during the procedure and the recovery period. All of the standard medications administered during the procedures are included in the basic fees. Local anesthesia, analgesia, sedation and anxiety relief are offered to each patient.
We offer extra analgesia, complete sedation and general anesthesia upon request of individual patients and according to their needs.
Certain patients will require general anesthesia or special medication for discomfort. All of these services are available at our facilities and tailored to each patient by our Medical Doctor with 32 years experience.
We offer 3 different pain control management for your particular comfort needs.
(1) Light I.V. Sedation
For the relief of anxiety and to minimize the discomfort during the abortion.
(2) Moderate I.V. Sedation
An Immediate ease of anxiety and pain as well as relief of tension and stress.
(3) Conscious Sedation
Conscious sedation is a combination of medicines to help you relax (a sedative) and to block pain (an anesthetic) during a medical procedure. Conscious sedation lets you recover quickly, patient does not need a partner to drive you home.
(4) Deep I.V.Sedation/Twilight Anesthesia
This is short in duration and very safe. You may actually feel you are asleep “going under” or not conscious during the abortion surgery. Patient needs to have a partner to drive you home.
