Message from Chair, Kevin Roberts, MD
Anesthesiology services are often not foremost on your mind when you come to our facilities for surgery, childbirth or other specialized procedures for which you need an anesthetic, but rest assured that they are of utmost importance to our staff. While you are in our hands, our goal is to keep you safe, comfortable, and ready for the fastest recovery possible.
Our team shares a wide range of expertise that encompasses cardiac, general, thoracic, pediatrics, obstetric, vascular, surgical and diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, delivering more than 35,000 anesthetics annually. The Albany Med Faculty Physician anesthesiologists are Board eligible/Board certified and the subspecialists in cardiac, obstetric, and pediatric anesthesia, chronic pain management are all fellowship trained. In addition, the cardiac anesthesiologists are Trans Esophageal Echocardiography (TEE)-certified and are delivering care for new and innovative surgical approaches including TAVR (Transcutaneous Aortic Valve Replacement). We have an innovative program in ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and perioperative acute pain management. At the South Clinical Campus we provide specialized care for ambulatory surgical procedures.
The department excels in the educational mission of Albany Medical Center. Our physicians and staff are leaders in simulation training of our faculty, residents, student nurse anesthetists and medical students in our new state-of-the-art simulation center.
The Department of Anesthesiology is committed to providing the highest quality service to our patients, employing an exceptional standard of care expected from a major academic health care institution. We invite you to be a part of this commitment to excellence by learning more about our unique programs and services.
