Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesiology

Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesiology Group

Children with heart problems need highly specialized anesthesia care. Our team has years of extra training and experience caring specifically for children undergoing heart surgery.

We are lifeguard who continuously and vigilantly watch over your child to prevent problems and responds if problems arise. Our most important jobs are to continuously monitoring your child's vital functions, medical condition and level of consciousness during surgery.

Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesiologists

Anesthesiologists undergo a four-year training program after medical school. Additionally, the anesthesiologists on our staff who care for cardiac surgery patients also complete a cardiac anesthesia fellowship, with concentration in pediatric cardiac care. All of our anesthesiologists are board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology.

Meet our pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists.

Pediatric Cardiac Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs)

The anesthesiologist is often assisted by a nurse anesthetist, a skilled registered nurse with training in anesthesia delivery and pharmacology. Nurse anesthetists are carefully selected and undergo a two-year concentrated study in anesthesia. At Children's Hospital, we select from a motivated group of nurse anesthetists and provide additional training in pediatric cardiac anesthesia.
