Weill Cornell anesthesiologists provide care to a large and diverse population. An increasing number of surgical procedures are now done on an outpatient basis, and the Department of Anesthesiology trains its physicians to be complete perioperative physicians. Anesthesiologists are on hand to ensure that patients have a safe and comfortable experience with their surgery, and to diagnose and treat any problems that arise during surgery or recovery. Weill Cornell anesthesiologists also specialize in the treatment of acute and chronic pain at the Pain Medicine Center, which provides extensive evaluation and an individualized pain management program to its patients.
