Dr. Bernett has perfected the use of local injectable anesthesia with mild or moderate sedation, also known as “dream state anesthesia,” to avoid using general anesthesia in many surgical procedures. During this process, she ensures that the patient is comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure, without the use of inhaled general anesthesia. This helps patients to avoid side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and temporary weakness. In addition, Dr. Bernett’s patients recover more quickly after their procedure using her local injectable anesthesia methods over general anesthesia. Certain procedures do require general anesthesia, but these are done safely at a credentialed outpatient surgery center or at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center.
