Preventing Pain and Increasing Safety

The Nemours Children's anesthesia team help make procedures and surgeries easier. We have the experience and skill to control pain and calm children of all ages, even the tiniest newborns. We’re here before, during and after to help with a smooth, safe recovery.

Our team is highly trained in the newest methods and technologies made just for kids. This expertise means we use the right tools and can give the right medicines at the right time, including sedation when possible. It also means we can use the most effective doses with the fewest side effects.

We communicate with other specialists to arrange procedures or combine surgeries, so your child may need anesthesia less often. In some areas, we also offer services for kids with ongoing pain from medical conditions or treatments.

At Nemours, your child’s safety and comfort are our highest priorities.
