Pediatric Anesthesiology

Reducing anxiety and ensuring that our special patients are comfortable while undergoing treatment.

Anesthesiology: Special Attention on Kids

Our staff has years of special training and experience with young patients, and they understand the intricacies of children’s bodies, structures and functions. This underscores the difference between general anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology.

The type of anesthesia we use is based on a child’s age, the type and length of surgery, general health, and other factors. We strive to put every child and parent at ease before and during each surgical procedure. 

Working as a key member of the surgical team, our pediatric anesthesia staff manages the anesthesia process from the start of our young patients’ surgery until it is complete.

During this time, we monitor the child’s heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and oxygen and anesthesia levels. Because children have special physical requirements, we use specially designed equipment and techniques.

Common surgical procedures that require anesthesia include general surgery (appendectomy, tonsillectomy) and advanced surgeries (cardiac, neurological, and orthopedic). 

Reducing Anxiety

In addition to comprehensive pediatric care, our highly trained professionals also provide chronic and acute pain management for children. We understand that the stress of hospitalization and medical treatment can be traumatic for children and their families. Our goal is to to reduce the anxiety and ensure that our special patients are as comfortable as possible while undergoing treatment.
