Making surgery as comfortable and stress-free as possible for kids is one of our top priorities at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Because children’s anesthesia needs are so different, the pediatric anesthesiologists at Children’s are specially trained and experienced to tailor anesthesia and pain management for children and teens whose bodies are still growing.
At Children’s, a pediatric anesthesiologist is guaranteed. Our team plans safe anesthesia for each child based on his weight, height and type of surgery. Through special training and experience, pediatric anesthesiologists provide safe care for infants and children with even the most difficult health issues.
An anesthesiology provider will be with your child throughout the procedure, continuously monitoring his condition as the surgeon works. At our outpatient surgery centers, you will most likely be allowed in the operating room until your child is given an anesthesia mask.
