Anesthesia today is safer than ever before, and pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to handle any medical emergencies that may arise.
Understanding and treating the tiny, complex hearts of infants and young children requires a team of medical experts with extensive training and experience. Our pediatric anesthesiologists bring years of experience and expertise in managing heart disease and supporting heart surgery performed for infants and children.
A pediatric anesthesiologist evaluates children prior to surgery, consults with the surgical team, provides pain control during surgery, monitors and supports critical functions such as breathing during surgery, and supervises pain management after surgery through discharge.
Our pediatric anesthesiologist participates in regular multidisciplinary cardiology conferences with your child’s cardiologist, cardiothoracic surgeon, nurses, and any other relevant medical staff to discuss and develop a comprehensive, coordinated care plan for each child.
