What we do
The Department of Pediatric Anesthesia cares for children of all ages with many different medical conditions. Our team of anesthesiologists (medical doctors) provides sedation and anesthesia for a wide range of surgical and diagnostic procedures. We are also experts in pain management and critical care.
We provide this care in a variety of locations throughout the hospital and across the city, including the operating room, the Radiology Department, the Burn Unit, the Intensive Care Unit and the BC Cancer Agency.
Our goal is to give your child a safe and comfortable anesthetic. All of our anesthesiologists have special training in anesthesia for children. They work together with anesthesia assistants and nurses to keep your child safe and comfortable during your child’s surgery or procedure.
