To give a patient a positive experience both surgery-wise and recovery-wise, Dr. Amiya Prasad capitalizes on the following areas: (1) the anesthesia method, (2) the surgical team, (3) the surgical technique, and (4) the post-operative recovery process.
The Anesthesia Method
Dr. Prasad uses his own modified sedation method—LITE™ IV sedation. This method has been proven to have a better effect on patients as it allows them to reemerge from surgery without feeling groggy or nauseated. It also allows them to heal faster than they normally would had they been placed under a general anesthetic.
The Surgical Team
Dr. Prasad understands that longer surgery times can have a negative effect on a patient, which is why he always performs surgeries in his own Joint Commission-accredited operating rooms, with a consistent surgical team made up of highly trained individuals. Working in such a set-up allows surgeries to happen much faster and smoother. It also allows Dr. Prasad and his team to give immediate and attentive aftercare to their patients, which has shown to have a significant effect on how well patients recover after surgery.
The Surgical Technique
When surgeries are performed efficiently and properly, the patient has a better a recovery experience afterwards. With over 20 years of experience under his belt, Dr. Amiya Prasad has developed a mastery of the art and technique needed in his line of work. Like how an experienced pilot is prepared to handle any type of situation when flying a plane, Dr. Prasad is similarly well adept in handling any scenario in the operating room, given his extensive experience and know-how.
The Post-Operative Recovery Process
At hospitals and surgery centers, Dr. Prasad observed that there was often a big mismatch in the number of support staff in the relation to the number of patients, and this usually led to interruptions in essential aftercare procedures. Delays like these directly affect the overall recovery time of the patient, and it was for that reason that Dr. Prasad decided to launch his own surgical and aftercare facilities.
