Anesthesiology Service

The members of Anesthesiology Service in the Equine and Nemo Farm Animal Hospital (EFAH) of Cornell University Hospital for Animals are dedicated to anesthetic care. Our team of anesthesiologists, residents and technicians provides sedation, general anesthesia, regional anesthesia and acute pain management to more than 1000 patients requiring surgical or diagnostic procedures each year.

As veterinary medicine advances, increasingly complex procedures are available for diagnosing and treating serious medical or surgical conditions. Our team provides advanced anesthetic techniques - including advanced monitoring. We treat many high risk patients, and we provide anesthesia for emergency procedures after-hours and during holidays.
