Anesthesia and Pain Medicine

Cardiac Anesthesia

The Division of Cardiac Anesthesia is part of the Department of Anesthesia and Pain Medicine at SickKids.  

The doctors in the Division have specific expertise in the care of children undergoing surgery for congenital heart disease. They also take care of children with cardiovascular disease having other procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia. They are involved in evaluation, pre-operative assessment and consultation, as well as perioperative care including anxiety and pain management. Several members of the group are involved in research, including innovative approaches to surgical treatment, cardiovascular physiology and new technology.
