Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine
The Division of Cardiac Anesthesiology at Tufts Medical Center is committed to delivering an exceptional experience to both patients and their families every day. Tufts Medical Center cares for the highest acuity cardiac patients in the Boston area, with large numbers of our patients suffering from advanced heart failure.
Our Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplantation Center has the best outcomes in Boston and we were ranked among the top ten cardiac transplant programs in the country last year. Our tremendous success in caring for individuals suffering from cardiac disease is rooted in our clinical experience caring for patients with severe and complex cardiovascular disease.
While our anesthesiologists provide carefully tailored care to each patient as an individual, we harness this power of caring for over a thousand patients suffering from complex cardiac disease per year. Our clinical volume is growing and has increased more than 50% in the last three years. We perform approximately 60 heart transplants and 60 ventricular assist devices per year.
Equally as important, we have created a culture of innovation. We refuse to rest on tradition and constantly strive to find ways to improve how we care for patients using the latest technology. We emphasize multidisciplinary collaboration and provide seamless transitions as patients travel into and out of the operating room. Coping with heart disease and heart surgery can be stressful. As cardiac anesthesiologists, we strive to keep our patients warm, pain free and safe, all while focused on the goal of facilitating their speedy recovery so they can return home to their friends and families as soon as possible.
