We are leaders in surgical anesthesia and in pain medicine.
Our expert physicians offer advanced anesthesia and pain management options both inside and outside of the hospital.
Experiencing pain while receiving medical treatment, whether it is caused by your condition or a surgical procedure, slows the healing process and decreases your quality of life. Indiana University Health anesthesia specialists are experts in managing your pain and keeping you comfortable before, during and after surgery. Our physicians focus on your comfort and safety so you have the best healthcare experience possible.
IU Health anesthesiologists provide services throughout the hospital to assist a wide variety of patients, including:
- In post-surgical care, we control your pain so you can rest easily. Throughout your recovery in the hospital, we offer pain management so you can participate in rehabilitation and other therapies that help you heal.
- Our anesthesiologists in labor and delivery administer epidural pain relief to alleviate the pain of labor.
- Anesthesiology services are available around the clock to assist with emergency procedures, such as traumatic injuries or cardiac stent placement in heart attack patients.
- We assist patients outside the hospital with chronic, debilitating pain to find long-term pain management solutions that allow them to live healthy, active lives.
We are dedicated to providing you with personalized care that meets your needs and preferences. Our commitment to patient- and family-centered care ensures that you play a key role in developing your treatment plan for surgery, labor and delivery and pain management.
