Anesthesia is an essential part of your overall care. It reduces or eliminates your pain and enables your care team to provide the treatment you need.
You may receive anesthesia locally where numbing medicine is directed at the exact location of your pain. Or, you may have general anesthesia that affects your entire body and causes you to lose consciousness. Whether you need anesthesia during surgery or critical pain management following a traumatic injury, anesthesiologists provide individualized and expert care.
Emory Healthcare offers one of the most vital anesthesiology departments in the nation. Our anesthesiologists work together with surgeons and other team members to provide critical care pain management, surgical anesthesiology, pediatric anesthesiology, obstetric anesthesiology, and more.
