Division of Pediatric Anesthesia

About the Division

Our clinical mission is to provide leadership in the anesthetic care of the children of San Diego while providingcomprehensive training to residents, medical students, nurses, and paramedics. We provide pediatric anesthesia services at Rady Children's Hospital - San Diego and the UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest and Thornton Pavilion (part of Jacobs Medical Center) in La Jolla. We also provide pediatric critical care services for the UC San Diego Regional Burn Center in Hillcrest. Our patient care also extends to prevention, as we are active in programs seeking to improve burn safety awareness in the community.

We provide anesthesia for surgical interventions for neonates in the 49-bed neonatal intensive care unit at the UC San Diego medical center, including major abdominal surgery and off-pump thoracic surgery. We also provide residents with experience in off-site anesthesia for pediatric radiation oncology treatments at the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center in La Jolla.
