Monitored Care Anesthesia

Monitored Anesthesia Care (MAC) is a type of sedative that leaves the patient in a “twilight sleep,” where patients follow surgeon’s instructions without feeling discomfort. MAC can be used for procedures including foot surgery, cataract surgery, colonoscopy, and endoscopy. The medication Propofol may be used, which achieves results quickly with rarely any side effects.
