Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine

The Anesthesiology Department is affiliated with the University of Ottawa. It is made up of approximately 16 respected anesthesiologists who are also teaching personnel at the university.  The department performs about 8 500 surgery cases per year. 

The department provides support to all of the surgical specialties provided at CHEO — cardiac surgery, dental surgery, ENT, general surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, plastic surgery and urology. 

The anesthesiology department provides support for diagnostic or therapeutic interventions from a vast array of medical fields such as cardiology, diagnostic imaging, nephrology, neurology, nuclear medicine, oncology and rheumatology.

On average we see some 25 patients in the pre-assessment clinic for various day surgery cases, which is open on a daily basis.  

Our department has an acute pain service and is involved with the chronic pain team. Look under those headings for further information.
