Main Operating Room/Anesthesiology—Working as a Team

With a wide breadth of experience, the trauma operating room team is expert at dealing with every situation, from the simple to the most intricate procedures. The physicians work closely with registered nurses to provide patient care.

The Anesthesia Department provides an in-house board-certified anesthesiologist 24 hours a day as part of the surgical team, as well as:

  • Registered nurses
  • Anesthesia specialists (open heart surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics, trauma)
  • State-of-the-art pain services (experts in perioperative and chronic pain management)

As part of  a Level I Trauma Center, our trauma anesthesiologists must meet additional standards for excellence. The  trauma anesthesiology team undergoes additional education and all members become certified instructors for our Advanced Trauma Life Support classes.
