Anesthesiology

At Indiana University Health, our anesthesiology specialists are leaders in their field with expertise in surgical anesthesia and pain management. Our anesthesia team works hard to ensure your comfort and safety whether you need pain management or sedation before, during or after a procedure or surgery. We put our patients first by maximizing comfort and minimizing recovery time. We help patients remain as pain-free as possible and provide continuity of care for surgery patients from pre-operative through post-operative care.

Indiana University Health Saxony Hospital offers anesthesia care provided by Anesthesia Consultants of Indianapolis, LLC. In the hospital, anesthesiologists provide services for a wide variety of patients, including around-the-clock care for emergency procedures and traumatic injuries. Throughout your recovery in the hospital, we offer pain management so you can participate in rehabilitation and other therapies that help you heal. For outpatients, our long-term pain management options help with chronic pain.

At IU Health Saxony Hospital, our anesthetic protocol for orthopedic patients uses a multimodal approach, including regional anesthesia (also known as nerve blocks). This provides greater comfort levels and mobility, thus leading to better rehabilitation.

The use of regional anesthesia has also decreased the need for lengthy hospital stays. In fact, most patients who have orthopedic procedures performed at IU Health Saxony Hospital are discharged from the hospital the next day, with some even being discharged the same day.

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