Dr. Brown earned his Medical Degree at Upstate Medical School in Syracuse, New York in 1995.. He completed his training in anesthesia at Shand's Hospital at the University of Florida in 2000. Glenn is a board certified anesthesiologist and holds a medical licenses in both Florida and Tennessee. He has served on multiple hospital committees, published several articles, been interviewed for television, radio and podcasts, and he remained active in the education of multiple medical specialists.
Glenn Brown has worked in multiple hospitals and outpatient surgery centers throughout Palm Beach County, but now focuses on ambulatory and office based surgery. His goal is to get patients through surgery quickly and comfortably, minimizing the inconvenience and disruption to their lives.
"An old joke goes that a minor surgery is one that is happening to someone else; major surgery is one that is happening to you. I understand that even a minor procedures can be frightening, and that is why I try to use some of the most modern and innovative techniques to get a patient through their procedure quickly and with a minimum of discomfort."
Many patients have medical conditions, but this does not necessarily exclude them from the convenience of an office based surgery or sedation dentistry. A careful assessment, and some preparation, can make an outpatient procedure safe, convenient and cost effective. In some circumstances, avoidance of the exposure other potentially sick patients (as you might find at a a hospital) can make the office an ideal setting, and certainly preferably to the protracted hospital stay.
Vigilance and awareness are keys to maintaining a safe anesthetic. Goals not only include the safety and well-being of the patient, but also avoidance of common problems such as post-operative pain and nausea and vomiting are paramount. At Lakeshore Anesthesia, we attempt to use some of the newest medications to ensure adequate anesthesia, a quick recovery, adequate pain control and no post-anesthesia complications.
Sometimes there are obstacles to coming into a medical office (and this is especially true with the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic), but help is still available. Much of the pre-operative care can be handled without the need to be seen in person. Nonetheless, anesthesia does require some 'hands on' care, especially on the day of your procedure- we do everything we can to ensure that your health and safety are kept paramount, while minimizing your risk. We are always working on ways to make the anesthetic experience both safe and convenient.
(I am currently trying to develop contactless methods of seeing patients, both pre-op and post-op. Please be patient).
