The Department of Anesthesiology at the Texas Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive peri-operative care of the child undergoing surgery for cancer. A great asset to our Surgical Oncology program, the anesthesia team is very experienced with complex airway management, intra-operative management of complex surgical oncology cases, and post-operative critical care management of the surgical patient. 

Additionally, the Pain Management Service provides complex pain monitoring and therapy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week of our surgical oncology patients.  This service is skilled at performing epidurals, regional blocks, and nerve blocks for these surgical patients in order to provide pain relief requiring less anesthetic agents and narcotics in the peri-operative period.
