The Yale Medicine Department of Anesthesiology is a national leader in its field, and is dedicated to providing the highest quality anesthesia care to both children and adults. We provide pain management care to patients before, during, and after surgery, and work in a variety of clinical and specialty areas. We care for patients undergoing a wide range of procedures, whether they are healthy or gravely ill.

We are committed to providing cutting-edge, safe, and short-acting anesthetic medications to patients. Our expert care teams include certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), APRNs, PAs, RNs and technicians, and specialist physicians.

In our clinical research, we focus on developing technologies to improve patient safety and reduce perioperative care costs. Our translational research efforts are particularly strong in areas of regenerative medicine and vascular engineering.
