Perioperative & Adult Anesthesiology
Our providers are dedicated to providing anesthesia care to patients in the following subspecialty surgical areas:
- Pre-admission testing:We review what testing is necessary for patients prior to surgery. Our section collaborates with biomedical imaging specialists and the Department of Laboratory Medicine to reduce the costs of unnecessary tests.
- Ear, nose, and throat (ENT) anesthesia:We provide state-of-the-art care for our patients and perform preoperative endoscopic exams.
- Orthopaedic anesthesia:We routinely care for patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery, as well as elderly adults suffering from severe co-existing cardiovascular or pulmonary diseases. As an alternative to a general anesthetic, many procedures for orthopaedic patients may be better managed with regional (local) anesthesia or with combined regional/general anesthetic techniques. Our anesthesiologists are familiar with such regional anesthetic procedures as spinal, epidural, and major nerve blocks, as well as other anesthetic techniques, such as fiber optic intubation for complex airway problems and special patient positioning to avoid intraoperative nerve injury.
- Transplant anesthesia:Our specialized group works closely with the multispecialty transplant team to care for pediatric and adult cardiac, liver, and kidney transplant recipients.
