Information for Patients
The UNC Department of Anesthesiology provides a full spectrum of expert anesthesia services for all patients and surgeries — from newborns to geriatrics, outpatient ambulatory surgery to invasive inpatient procedures, elective operations to emergencies to continued postoperative care in the intensive care unit. Faculty provide both general anesthesia services and subspecialty care (for example, cardiovascular, obstetric and pediatric anesthesia teams).

Nevertheless, you will find some generally useful information in this section of the website. you can explore the rest of the site to find information about the department. Useful anesthesia care information for patients and those supporting their patient care can also be found on general patient information pages at these UNC Health and American Society of Anesthesiologists links.
