The Anesthesiology Department at Westchester Medical Center provides expert and compassionate pain management to our patients. Utilizing the most advanced techniques available, our staff of board-certified anesthesiologists includes specialists in the areas of pediatric anesthesia, obstetrical anesthesia, pain management, critical care, cardiovascular anesthesia, neurosurgical anesthesia and trauma management. 

Our department actively consults with other physicians on preoperative care, anesthetic procedures, and pain management to ensure the best care for their patients, and welcomes questions and concerns from patients directly regarding their anesthesia options for surgery or obstetrical care.

As an academic partner of the New York Medical College, we actively participate in ongoing research and clinical trials, and provide four years of expert education and training to medical residents in our Anesthesiology Residency program.  Our curriculum, research, and training ensure that our services and patient care are always at the forefront of medical advances in anesthesiology.
