Pediatric Anesthesia

Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Anesthesia.  We are a subset of  anesthesiologists who have expertise in pediatric anesthetic care. 

Our staff provides care for children at the University Campus and for
NICU patients at the Memorial Campus. We develop all policies regarding  pediatric anesthetic care at the UMMMC.  Our goal is to provide the safest, most effective and up to date care possible. 

During their rotation with us, residents will be trained in both common and  uncommon pediatric surgical procedures, for example, tonsillectomies and  circumcisions, as well as major abdominal and thoracic cases.  The residents will  provide care to all age groups from neonates and infants, up to teenagers. They  will occasionally care for premature NICU patients at the Memorial Campus as well.  

Residents will be involved with non-surgical anesthetic care in the Radiology  department, such as MRI.  They will be trained in common neuraxial and  peripheral regional techniques used in children.  

We feel it is a great privilege to take care of children and their families!
