The UCI Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care provides the highest quality of anesthesia care to patients undergoing general and specialty surgical procedures.

We provide general and subspecialty anesthesia care for a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient procedures at the UCI Medical Center, UCI Health Gavin Herbert Eye Institute and the UCI Beckman Laser Institute & Medical Clinic. In addition to surgical and procedural anesthesia, we provide perioperative pain services, emergency airway management and epidurals and anesthesia services for labor and delivery.

Our faculty anesthesiologists work in a care team model, supervising residents and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs), to ensure safe and individualized anesthesia care for patients. Our anesthesia care is tailored to every patient’s age, preexisting medical condition and the type of surgery to ensure the best possible outcome. We have a robust quality program that constantly tracks outcomes and advises on best practices supported by the latest medical literature.
