Neuroanesthesia Program at Boston Children’s Hospital

Members of the Neuroanesthesia Program at Boston Children’s Hospital are experts in providing anesthesia for neurosurgical procedures varying from simple to complex.

Our neuroanesthesiologists provide anesthesia care for spectrum of conditions and treatments

Each patient undergoing neurosurgery at Boston Children’s Hospital receives care from a team of individuals that includes:

Baby and Dad


  • Neurosurgeon
  • Neuroanesthesiologists
  • Neurologists
  • Neuromonitoring
  • Neurocritical care




The team works collaboratively along with the patient and the family to provide state-of the art collaborative neurocritical care. 

Neuroanesthesia is provided in the designated neurosurgical operating rooms. Advanced neuro monitoring is available to help the neurosurgeons and neuroanesthesiologists provide a safer level of care.

The neuroanesthesiologist works to ensure optimal operating conditions for the neurosurgeon while ensuring unconsciousness, maintenance of good brain blood flow and oxygen levels, and appropriate pain management during and after the procedure.

Occasionally, the neurosurgeon may need to have the patient awake and able to follow commands during the procedure. Our neuroanesthesia group is highly experienced in the provision of anesthesia for these and other such challenging situations.


We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
