The Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at Penn Medicine was founded over 50 years ago. We provide clinical care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. Anesthesia care includes anesthesia and perioperative care for patients undergoing surgery or major diagnostic procedures. Our anesthesiologists work in conjunction with other hospital physicians to provide anesthesia for various inpatient and outpatient procedures.
