When your child needs surgery, he or she will be attended to by one of our pediatric anesthesiologists. This type of health professional works with your child's surgeon and is responsible for your child's general anesthesia, sedation and pain management needs. A pediatric anesthesiologist is a fully trained anesthesiologist who has also received additional specialized training in the anesthesia care of infants and children. At Bon Secours, our pediatric nesthesiologists provide:
- Planning and care for your child before, during and after surgery
- A non-threatening environment in the operating room
- Pain control, if needed, after surgery
Our pediatric anesthesiologists understand how to work with children so that they feel comfortable and relaxed. We won't just treat your child like a small adult. You can feel assured that your child is in the hands of a compassionate, caring professional who has special expertise in dealing with children.
