Patient Care

Welcome to University Hospital's Anesthesiology Services

Whether you're looking for patient care information and treatment services or you're interested in the breadth of our research enterprise, you will find it here.

The department was established in 1960 and is presently chaired by Nancy Nussmeier, MD. Nearly 14,000 patients receive the highly regarded services of the Faculty Members and all the other Staff. The faculty comprise 28 physicians, 5 nurse practitioners and approximately 33 physicians in training. They handle the most complex cases in Central New York, and with other, dedicated investigators, participate in a vigorous research program focused on human physiology, spinal narcotic analgesia and hyperbaric medicine.
