“Anesthesiology is so much more than just putting people to sleep,” says Stanley H. Rosenbaum, MD, director of Yale Medicine Perioperative & Adult Anesthesiology. It also includes traditional intraoperative care, as well as such subspecialties as chronic pain management and critical care.

Yale Medicine takes a unique approach to critical care anesthesiology due to the breadth and depth of experience that anesthesiologists take into the intensive care unit.
