Four anesthesiologists working on a patient in the OR.

Our anesthesiologists, along with certified registered nurse anesthesiologists (CRNAs) and anesthesiology residents, care for outpatients who are discharged immediately after their surgery and do not require an overnight stay in the hospital. This ambulatory care, which spares patients the disruption of an overnight hospitalization, is designed to make the surgical experience as convenient and safe as possible for patients. We care for patients undergoing a wide range of procedures.  

Our department is recognized as a leader in anesthesiology care, education and research. Our comprehensive care includes:

  • Evaluating patients before surgery (preoperative)
  • Consulting with surgeons, providing pain control and monitoring life functions during surgery (intraoperative)
  • Supervising care after surgery (postoperative) and medically discharging patients from the recovery unit
