When you are taken into surgery are you lying on back or
stomach before anesthesia? Thanks.


  • When you are wheeled into the operating room, you are on your back. Anesthesia will be initiated while you are on your back so that they can place a tube in your throat (intubate) to help you breathe. After you are out, they will reposition you if needed.

    Have a good day,
