We know you may want to dig for more information, so we gathered these easy-to-digest materials and resources from pediatric organizations in Minnesota and beyond.

What to expect

When your child is having anesthesia, the last thing you want to feel is unprepared. So at Children's Minnesota, we go the extra mile to make sure you and your child are ready and relaxed on surgery day. Below are some key things to know about anesthesia at one or our hospitals or day surgery centers.

Meet the Team

At Children's Minnesota, we have a large team of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists who specialize in working with kids of all ages. That's important because children's bodies differ from adults' in a number of ways that affect anesthesia — the medicine used to help patients feel no pain during surgery and other invasive procedures.

Outcomes and research

Choosing where to bring your child for care is a major decision. We understand you want all the information you can get. And you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.

Conditions and services

Anesthesiology is a medical specialty that parents rarely think about — until a child needs surgery, that is. Having access to the right anesthesia administered by the most experienced pediatric anesthesiologists can quickly become a top priority. That's exactly what you'll find at Children's Minnesota.
