Neuroanesthesia and Neurophysiologic Monitoring Services
The neuroanesthesia faculty cares for patients who require either diagnostic and surgical procedures, or both, for intracranial (inside the head) and spinal diseases or conditions.
What Makes Neurosurgical Anesthesia Different?
There are many commonalties between neurosurgical anesthesia and general anesthesia. Neuro-anesthetic management, however, is different because it can have a major effect on the brain and spinal cord through the control of blood flow, blood pressure and energy consumption of these organs.
Anesthesiologists use these effects to the patient's advantage by enhancing surgical exposure, decreasing operation time, decreasing blood loss and improving patient outcome. Our anesthesiologists use cutting-edge techniques and work closely with the surgical team to assure good neurological outcomes.
