All residents are given an opportunity to rotate through Orthopedic Anesthesia in Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, The Roger Clemens Institute for Sports Medicine & Human Performance, and Harris Health System’s Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital. Anesthesia strategies range from the critically ill trauma patients to safe and effective delivery of anesthetic care to day surgery patients.
Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is one of the largest Level I trauma centers in the nation, thereby allowing residents to participate in providing safe and effective anesthesia care to orthopedic trauma, which encompasses spinal fractures, acetabulum and pelvic fractures, and multiple extremity fractures. This includes patient with unstable cervical spine requiring advanced airway management techniques and advance fluid and coagulation management strategies.
The Division of Orthopedic Anesthesia also serves a large patient population requiring total joint replacement, adult spine surgery, elective orthopedic trauma surgery, sports medicine, and hand surgery. The division includes regional anesthesiologists trained in the delivery of state-of-the-art neuroaxial and peripheral nerve blocks for improved patient care. The Division of Orthopedic Anesthesia also provides cutting-edge service to outpatients via the Perioperative Surgical Home model.
