OUR EXPERTISE

CHAM_Wakefield_PedsFloor_2014_11_15_121_316x210.jpgState-of-the-art anesthesia is a vital component of patient care at CHAM. Working closely alongside physicians, other clinicians, patients and their families, our team of expert anesthesiologists relieves pain, facilitates healing and promotes patient comfort, safety and well-being.

We are committed to ensuring superior pre-, peri- and postoperative care among children of all ages, from neonates to adolescents, who suffer from everything from playground injuries and broken bones to complicated diseases and trauma. Our physicians combine exceptional skills and expertise with diligence and empathy throughout the continuum of care—starting with preoperative evaluation, then through surgery and the recovery period.

The Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology is committed to providing educational programs in a collaborative learning environment that enables students, residents and fellows to acquire and maintain the full range of skills necessary to provide the best care possible to children who have become sick or injured. Our fellows have the unique opportunity of serving children from the culturally diverse borough of the Bronx, as well as those who travel to CHAM from around the tri-state area, the country and the globe. In addition to training our fellows in the most advanced clinical skills, we train them to understand the various developmental and psychological stages of their young patients.
