Here at Upstate, we are proud to deliver the highest level of pediatric anesthesiology care to the children of Central New York. Our Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology consists of 8 fellowship-trained pediatric anesthesiologists.  Our clinical care extends throughout Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital, providing services within our five-operating room Center for Children's Surgery, along with many outside of the OR locations, including MRI, CT scan, interventional radiology, and radiation oncology.  We also care for all surgical patients at the Level 4 NICU at neighboring Crouse Hospital, who are temporarily transferred to Golisano Children's Hospital at Upstate specifically for surgical and anesthesiology care.  Furthermore, we staff our hospital's outpatient surgical center, Upstate Ambulatory Surgery Center, on days where pediatric patients are scheduled.

Our division is also integral to the educational, clinical, and research goals of our department and institution, having our own pediatric-specific lecture series, participating in hospital-wide committees, and having multiple quality improvement projects to improve patient care.  Our residents get hands-on training alongside our staff anesthesiologists to prepare them for caring for our smallest patients after they are done with their training.
