The Department of Anesthesiology at the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) is one of the largest and most comprehensive anesthesia services in Southeast Michigan. In addition to serving patients at DMC hospitals, the Department of Anesthesia provides anesthesia and pain management services at all DMC facilities – including eight hospitals, three ambulatory surgery centers and five imaging centers.
In all, we perform more than 70,000 cases per year, including 45,220 surgical outpatient cases, 25,080 surgical inpatient cases, 16,000 deliveries and 3,200 caesarian sections. Our high patient load means we have more experience, in fact, our physicians and staff are among the most experienced in Southeast Michigan. We provide high-quality, compassionate care to all patients. In addition to our general anesthesia services, we also provide expert pain management services in outpatient clinics.
Anesthesia Services are provided by a physician-directed anesthesia care team with nearly 60 anesthesiologists on active staff providing medical direction and education to more than 100 certified nurse anesthetists, 40 resident physicians, 20 student nurse anesthetists and many clinical nurse practitioners and anesthesia technicians.
Together, we strive to continually exceed our current standards of excellence in patient care while also educating future anesthesiologists and conducting laboratory and clinical research to advance the field of anesthesiology.
