Office-based anesthesia (OBA) is a form of ambulatory anesthesia that has experienced exponential growth over the last two decades and is currently the fastest growing subspecialty of anesthesiology in the United States. With the advent of smaller, mobile monitoring devices and refined anesthetic techniques, select surgical procedures can be performed in the comfort and convenience of your office. Depending on the type of surgery, anesthesiologists from Mobile Anesthesia Care (MAC) tailor their anesthesia services to meet the needs of your patients.
OBA provides significant advantages to both patients and the medical team providing care. For selected patients and procedures, OBA provides increased patient satisfaction and a more cost-effective approach to medical care than a comparable hospital-based environment. These are just a few of the advantages fueling the rise in demand for office-based procedures.
