Our providers are dedicated to providing anesthesia care to patients in the following subspecialty surgical areas:
- Ear, nose and throat (ENT) anesthesia: We provide state-of-the-art care for our patients using multiple modern techniques and perform preoperative endoscopic exams.
- Orthopaedic anesthesia: As an alternative to a general anesthetic, many procedures for orthopaedic patients may be better managed with regional anesthesia or with combined regional/general anesthetic techniques. We routinely care for patients undergoing orthopaedic surgery as well as elderly adults suffering from severe co-existing cardiovascular or pulmonary diseases. Our anesthesiologists are familiar with such regional anesthetic procedures as spinal, epidural, and major nerve blocks, as well as other anesthetic techniques, such as fiberoptic 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 provide care to pediatric and adult cardiac, liver, and kidney transplant recipients.
- Pre-admission testing: We review what testing is necessary for patients prior to surgery. Our department has guidelines for testing and collaborates with biomedical imaging specialists and the Department of Laboratory Medicine to reduce the costs of unnecessary tests.
