About Us

The Patient Guide to Anesthesia & Surgery was developed by the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation's Patient Engagement Workgroup, a multidisciplinary team of patient advocates and anesthesia professionals to answer some of the most commonly asked questions patients have before surgery. Our goal is to help patients become more involved in their healthcare and learn more about what they can do to mitigate surgical risks and complications.
