Cardiac Anesthesia

The mission of the Section of Cardiac Anesthesia program is to provide high quality, comprehensive anesthesiology services for our patients throughout The Heart Center whether in the catheterization suite, the operating room, CT/MRI or during noncardiac procedures. Unique to the program are our capabilities with anesthetic management of the hybrid approach for hypoplastic left heart syndrome. In addition, our research is focused on measures to decrease the stress response in children undergoing congenital cardiac surgery, as well as early extubation techniques following cardiac surgery. These areas of expertise, along with our academic mission, will enable our department to gain national and international recognition in the field of pediatric cardiac anesthesia.
