Patient Care

Care of the patient having Cardiothoracic or Vascular Surgery at Stanford. Our Cardiovascular Anesthesia Service has been providing state of the art care for patients at Stanford having cardiac and vascular surgery since 1972. We do this in the environment of an academic medical center, training residents and fellows. Our relationship with our cardiac surgeons and vascular surgeons is a very complimentary one, with mutual respect and cooperation form both aspects.

We are very concerned with all aspects of patient safety. Regular conferences are held to discuss problem cases with the aim of improving our care. Our faculty are highly specialized in the intricacies of the care of the routine and critically ill patient having cardiac or vascular surgery.

We welcome any inquiries from patients about their upcoming surgeries. Ample time is always given to insuring that all patients are fully informed about the anesthetic care plan.
