About the Department

Welcome to Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School - Department of Anesthesia Web Site. We hope that you find our web site informative and useful. The faculty of our department provides anesthesia services to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital in New Brunswick New Jersey.

The primary goals of our department are to:

  • Provide optimal anesthetic care for our patients,
  • Educate and train students, residents/fellows, research staff, and ancillary personnel, and
  • Conduct nationally respected research aimed at improving the quality of patient care during anesthesia.

The faculty of the Department of Anesthesia provided anesthesia over 15,000 patients annually at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. The cardiac anesthesia faculty provided anesthesia services for over twelve hundred cardiac procedures this past year, and the department’s pain faculty treated over seventeen hundred patients at the New Jersey Pain Institute.
