The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital pediatric anesthesia team specializes in managing your child’s anxiety before surgery, assuring safety during surgery, and alleviating pain following procedures.
These doctors and certified registered nurse anesthetists care for children from premature newborns to adolescents. Pediatric anesthesia team members are specially trained to care for children and their specific needs during surgeries and medical procedures. Depending on the type of procedure your child is having, our anesthesiologists use different medicines to make sure your child stays comfortable, relaxed, and still.

The pediatric anesthesia team also monitors, maintains, and protects the vital functions of the heart, lungs, and brain during complex procedures, and specializes in providing anesthesia and sedation to children born with congenital heart disease.
