Pediatric Anesthesiology

The Division of Pediatric Anesthesiology at Emory University is based at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. Affiliated hospitals include Emory University Hospital and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. Our division provides anesthetic care for a comprehensive range of pediatric operating room cases including neurosurgical, orthopedic, general surgical, ENT, urologic, ophthalmologic, cardiac, and solid organ transplantation procedures. Additionally, anesthetic care is provided for children undergoing a variety of outpatient surgical cases and procedures requiring anesthetic care outside of the operating rooms. Clinical research projects are also undertaken to answer the abundant questions that rise when caring for children with complex medical problems undergoing invasive procedures.

In conjunction with our clinical and research activities, an ACGME accredited pediatric anesthesiology fellowship is sponsored at our institution. The fellowship is a 12-month program that aims to produce perioperative anesthesiology consultants with expertise in all areas of pediatric anesthesiology. Four fellows are trained each year. Fellows are exposed to pain management and critical care medicine rotations to complement their experience providing anesthetic care. Clinical research opportunities are provided, and fellow level didactic sessions are held in order to more deeply explore topics and issues in the field of pediatric anesthesiology.
