Anesthesia Consultation Service

A surgeon may schedule a special pre-admission anesthesia consult for patients with particularly complicated/acute medical problems that may need to be addressed before they can be safely anesthetized.

To schedule an anesthesia consult, surgeons can call the Anesthesia Department at 617-573-3380.
