Social Distancing? No Problem
According to the CDC, limiting face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of the novel Coronavirus disease. They recommend staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) away from other people, not gathering in large groups, as well as limiting contact with crowded, public places such as grocery stores.
At The Lanfranchi Center, we make social distancing practices simple for you, while keeping up with our efficient and clean practices that we have always had in place. Especially in times when physical contact should be minimized and respected, our method allows our patients to enter and leave our center with virtually no exposure to other clients. We have both a front and back entrance that allows us to maintain safe distances and privacy for our patients. We also maintain a small staff of only 4 team members and our boutique-style business model offers a niche specialty and allows for superior customer service.
Procedures Performed Under Local Anesthesia
We have always been known for keeping our patient’s entire experience “safe and simple.” All procedures are performed in our Center utilizing local anesthesia and mild oral sedation (i.e. valium or xanax). We never use heavy, and potentially dangerous, sedation that would require the need for an Anesthesiologist, IV, respirator, or cardiac monitoring. This fact also allows for faster recovery and a significant decrease in overall potential complications.
At The Lanfranchi Center, we utilize local anesthesia with oral sedation and we swear it’s easier than going to the dentist! Prior to your procedure, you will be given an oral sedative to help you relax and take away any anxiety. Providing effective local anesthesia is both a learned skill and an art. For his entire career, Dr. Lanfranchi has exclusively used this safe method to perform his over 10,000 procedures and he has many different techniques to make this portion of the procedure as comfortable as possible.
The most significant advantage of this approach is its safety. By not using dangerous deeper sedation, your body is not unnecessarily stressed and put at risk for systemic, even sometimes fatal, complications. This allows us to treat patients of any age and even most of those with a moderate medical history. For select patients, we may contact their family physician to be certain they are in good health before proceeding. Your safety is never compromised and is our number one concern from start to finish.
