Office-based surgery is one of the fastest growing areas in medicine. Improved technology and short-acting anesthetics have enabled less invasive surgeries to become more common and more conducive to an office setting. According to the Federated Ambulatory Surgery Association (FASA), the overall volume of surgeries has increased dramatically in recent years, growing from 20 million to 40 million cases from 1981 to 1999, and is expected to surpass 50 million cases by 2006.
Somnia, Inc. provides comprehensive anesthesia services to office-based surgical practices and ambulatory surgery centers. The company is a management service organization based in New Rochelle, NY. Somnia is dedicated to providing high quality, efficient and exceptional levels of service to patients and clients. For more information, please call 1.877.4SOMNIA (1.877.476.6642).
