OUR EXPERTISE

CHAM_Wakefield_PedsFloor_2014_11_15_121_316x210.jpgOur team of pediatric anesthesiologists is committed to ensuring superior pre-, peri- and postoperative anesthesia care for children of all ages, from neonates to adolescents. Pediatric anesthesiologists are trained in issues specific to children and recognize that children are not "small adults." They understand that disease processes, physical development and medication metabolism vary among children. Our physicians combine exceptional clinical skills with diligence and empathy throughout the continuum of care — starting with the child’s preoperative evaluation, through surgery and then the recovery period.

The Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology provides educational programs in a collaborative learning environment that enable medical students, residents and fellows to acquire the skills necessary to provide the highest level of care to children who have become sick or injured. In addition to the Pediatric Anesthesia Rotations for residents, we offer a 12-month ACGME approved Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship, which allows trainees to acquire the expertise to become consultants in pediatric anesthesiology.

RESEARCH

In addition to providing expert care to our young patients, the physician scientists in the Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology at CHAM investigate a range of topics related to anesthesia and anesthesia outcomes in children. Areas of investigation include outcomes in the treatment of pediatric scoliosis, opioid sparing techniques in children, pediatric pulmonary hypertension, and neurophysiologic effects during anesthesia using electroencephalography.
