Obstetric Anesthesiology

Division of Obstetric Anesthesiology

The obstetric anesthesiology division provides anesthesia to nearly 8,000 parturients each year, many of whom are in the high-risk category. On the obstetrical rotation, the resident will become adept in the use of epidural anesthesia, spinal anesthesia and combined spinal-epidural anesthesia, and will see a wide variety of major obstetrical problems. The OB Anesthesia team manages many high risk patients, and medically supervises the Labor and Delivery recovery room.
