The Anesthesiology Department performs more than 50,000 anesthetics a year! They include nearly 1,000 cardiac surgery procedures, approximately 30 liver transplants, and the full range of neonatal and pediatric surgical procedures on healthy children as well as those with complex medical conditions. We are also actively involved in the delivery of anesthesia to gravid patients who present for fetal interventions.

Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship

Our practice is unique in that we work with both academic and community surgeons, which prepares our fellows for both private practice and academic careers. All faculty members are certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and fellowship-trained.

Pediatric Cardiovascular Anesthesiology Fellowship

As an integral part of one of the largest and most comprehensive heart centers in the world, we offer prospective fellows an unrivaled clinical experience encompassing the spectrum of pediatric and congenital heart disease. Each year we provide care for more than 1,000 operations (600 on cardiopulmonary bypass), 1,500 cardiac catheterizations (diagnostic, interventional, and electrophysiology), and 500 radiology procedures (interventional, CT, and MRI). Highlighting this volume is our nation-leading experience in pediatric heart transplantation, lung transplantation, ventricular-assist devices, and adults with congenital heart disease.
