The Department of Anesthesiology at Albany Medical Center provides patients of all ages with general, regional and monitored anesthesia options. As a vital part of the team serving the region's only state-designated trauma center, the Department of Anesthesiology is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to meet the needs of patients facing a scheduled medical procedure or one that might be unexpected.
Our physicians and nurse anesthetists are uniquely prepared to support the full range of surgical and pain management needs of our patients.
Our goal at Albany Med is to keep patients as safe and comfortable as possible during and following medical procedures or surgery. Our patients are closely monitored to ensure the highest level of comprehensive care by our expert staff. We understand that receiving anesthesia can be unsettling for some patients, which is why we work hard to make sure our patients understand their options and our approach to their care.
Our goal at Albany Med is to provide each patient with the best possible outcome. Please take a few moments to watch this video that will help you understand all the steps as you prepare for surgery.
