Frontenac Anesthesia


What You Need To Know Before Your Surgery

Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) Guide For Safety

Your safety is our paramount concern. Frontenac Anesthesia stands as your vigilant guardian, ensuring that every step of your anesthesia experience is crafted with the utmost precision, care, and dedication to your well-being.

Please allow us to introduce ourselves. You are scheduled for a procedure in the next few weeks. A nurse anesthetist from Frontenac Anesthesia will be providing you with anesthesia services for your procedure. We take patient care very seriously and strive to provide the safest, optimal experience.

Our team will be available for any questions. Note: If your BMI is over 45 you will be required a pre-anesthesia consultation from one of our CRNAs.

A fee will be collected prior to your procedure and will be applied to the coinsurance/deductible and balance bill of the anesthesia claim submitted to your insurance. This will be your only responsibility for anesthesia services.

If you have any questions regarding the anesthesia services, please reach out to our patient liaison at (314) 820-9030.
