Division of Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology

The Division of Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology at NYU Langone Medical Center provides anesthesia for approximately 1,000 major adult cardiac surgeries, 200 pediatric cardiac surgeries and 900 thoracic procedures, each year. Our staff also covers 250 adult cardiac surgeries, each year, at Bellevue Hospital Center. Our anesthesiologists employ their advanced training of cardiac and thoracic anesthesia to make the perioperative period both safe and comfortable for patients. Our team makes use of innovative technologies such as 2D and 3D transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), cerebral oximetry and advanced hemodynamic monitoring. We also utilize epidural and paravertebral anesthesia in select cases.
