Pediatric Cardiovascular Anesthesia

A pediatric cardiovascular anesthesiologist must work hand-in-hand with a pediatric cardiac surgeon or catheterization specialist. Before, during and after surgery, a skilled cardiovascular anesthesiology team monitors children that undergo heart procedures at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital.

Our cardiovascular anesthesiologists are pediatric congenital heart disease specialists that work with children full-time, so they understand the complexities of pediatric cardiovascular problems. They are skilled at getting children safely sedated quickly in order to reduce anxiety and ensure pain-free procedures. This care continues in the pediatric intensive care unit where our intensivists are skilled at dealing with postoperative issues. Thus, a continuum of care is provided for our young patients, allowing for the most optimal result.
