Anesthesia

Anesthesiologists at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital provide a full range of services from sedation to general anesthesia for all infants, children and adult patients. This includes patients with cardiac disease, end-stage kidney and liver disorders, and all others who are undergoing diagnostic, surgical, and/or percutaneous interventional procedures.

Anesthesiologists in the Division of Obstetric Anesthesia offer expertise in obstetric anesthesia, and are involved in the management of high-risk pregnancies and are available for pre-delivery consultation.

Our cardiac anesthesiology team provides anesthesia for patients undergoing the full range of cardiac procedures, from imaging studies that doctors use to diagnose disease, to open-heart surgery.

Anesthesiologists are available 24 hours/day for consultations. For more information please visit our Pediatric Anesthesia and Pain Management Web site.
