Cardiovascular and Thoracic Anesthesiology

Cardiovascular and Thoracic Anesthesiology

On the Cutting Edge

The Cardiovascular Anesthesiology team at North Shore-LIJ consists of board-certified anesthesiologists who have expertise in caring for patients undergoing cardiovascular procedures and surgery. They employ state-of- the-art physiologic monitoring and have certification in perioperative transesophageal echocardiography. They work with our cardiac surgeons to provide dedicated care for patients undergoing procedures such as:

Our anesthesiologists are also involved in many new cardiology and cardiothoracic procedures such as the percutaneous implantation of artificial heart valves and new electrophysiology (EP) procedures. New EP procedures include percutaneous treatments for patients with atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias, as well as the insertion of specialized pacemakers and defibrillators. Each patient’s anesthetic plan is tailored to match his or her medical condition and procedure in order to enhance safety and maximize comfort.

Thoracic Surgery

Our anesthesiologists are experts at utilizing specialized techniques needed to care for patients undergoing complex thoracic procedures. They work closely with the health system’s thoracic surgeons, who commonly perform minimally invasive and innovative thoracic procedures to treat patients with diseases of the lung, esophagus and gastrointestinal tract, as well as thoracic tumors. Thoracic anesthesiologists commonly provide anesthesia and pain management for patients undergoing thoracoscopic lung resection, gastroesophageal reflux surgery and other thoracic procedures.
