At Indiana University Health North Hospital, our specialists are experts in anesthesia and pain management for patients of all ages. Your anesthesia team works hard to ensure your comfort and safety whether you need pain management or sedation before, during or after a surgery or procedure. We help you remain as pain-free as possible and provide continuity of care for surgery procedures from pre-operative through post-operative care.

Our anesthesiologists use the latest research to provide anesthesiology services. Our partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine allows our physicians to stay on the forefront of medicine and give you more options for sedation and pain relief.

Acute Pain Management

Following a major surgery, such as a joint replacement, our highly skilled anesthesiologists monitor your recovery and help you manage any symptoms, like nausea or pain. We develop personalized pain management plans so the pain does not prevent you from fully participating in your recovery.

Anesthesiologists at IU Health North Hospital offer a wide range of acute pain management options from medicine management to nerve blocks. We know that patients with properly managed pain can recover from surgery more quickly, so we strive to help you find the relief you need.

Obstetric Anesthesiology

IU Health North Hospital provides comprehensive care for expectant mothers. Our physicians take the time to teach you about your options with pain management so you can choose the best plan for you. Our goal is to allow you to participate as fully as possible in the delivery of your child.

If requested, we can provide safe and reliable epidural injections to relieve the discomfort of labor and delivery. Epidural injections are the most common pain management technique used during labor.

In addition, our expert anesthesiologists offer postpartum pain management and sedation for Caesarean (C-section) deliveries. Most mothers can remain awake and pain-free during these procedures so they can interact with their newborns as soon as possible.

Pediatric Anesthesiology

At IU Health North Hospital, we have anesthesiologists who specialize in treating children’s health needs. From newborns to teenagers, our physicians have the expertise your child needs for the safest and most comfortable experience possible.

Children often require anesthesiology services in situations when adults do not. For instance, children may need to be sedated for certain imaging procedures that require them to lie still for an extended period of time. They may also require sedation or pain management for small outpatient procedures that may involve pain or cause them anxiety.

Our physicians have years of experience and training in pediatric anesthesiology, ensuring that your child receives the highest quality of care.
