Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at MD Anderson Cancer Center is made up of a talented group of physicians, CRNAs and many others dedicated to providing the very best anesthesia and pain medicine care for our cancer patients. Our department team continues to focus on excellence in all areas of our practice, clinical care, research and education.
We have over 70 faculty and 140 others in the department working together to achieve our goals. Our clinical practice has grown along with MD Anderson, and we now provide over 25,000 anesthetics per year. Our research mission continues to grow, and we rank in the top 15 of all anesthesia departments for NIH support. We look forward to the generation of new knowledge that flows from our talented team and are especially pleased with advances being made in pain, neuroscience and proteomics research. We offer clinical and research fellowships in cancer anesthesia for interested physicians-in-training and add a second year of research training for selected pain medicine fellows. In association with affiliated institutions, we currently provide unique training opportunities for resident physicians and SRNAs rotating with our anesthesiology team.
