Description of Services

  • Comprehensive anesthesia services for neonates to young adults
  • State-of-the-art monitoring systems and anesthesia equipment specially designed for the care of pediatric patients
  • Approach tailored to the specific developmental needs of the child
  • Specialty teams devoted to:
  • Neuroanesthesia
  • Cardiothoracic anesthesia
  • Transplantation
  • Acute and chronic pain management

Why Children's Medical Center?

  • All anesthesiologists on the medical staff at Children's are specially trained in pediatric anesthesiology, so every child's surgery is done with a pediatric anesthesiologist.
  • The medical staff includes anesthesiologists who specialize in cardiac and neurological procedures.
  • Levels of anesthesia are administered dependent upon each child's age, size and condition.
  • To help alleviate a child's fear of surgery, child life specialists conduct medical child play therapy with patients before surgery and provide parents and patients an opportunity to ask questions about the surgery.
  • Our employees and the medical staff use techniques with each child based on the child's developmental stage.
  • We take special care to reunite all patients with their families immediately after waking up from surgery.

Information for referral sources:

Physician referral is required. Anesthesia services are coordinated when surgery is scheduled.
