The Department of Anesthesiology cares for patients undergoing surgery and chronic pain-related procedures and those requiring critical care. From sedating patients for minor procedures and ensuring patient comfort during diagnostic procedures such as colonoscopy and endoscopy, to maintaining optimal levels of anesthetic depth during surgery and pain management, anesthesiologists perform essential services across a wide range of medical procedures and conditions. BMC’s specialists are leaders in their fields and the team has expertise in such specialized fields as critical care, cardiac, pediatric, and obstetric anesthesia.
