Welcome to the division of cardiothoracic anesthesiology in the department of anesthesiology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville.

Patient Care

Our division has the unique opportunity to care for patients undergoing a full range of cardiac, thoracic and major vascular surgeries. The cases include open and minimally invasive valve surgery, aortic surgery, coronary artery bypass grafting surgery and thoracic surgery. Our structural heart program includes catheter-based aortic valve replacement (TAVR/TAVI), convergent procedures, mitral clip and watchman procedures. We also care for patients who undergo major endovascular repair of the thoracic and abdominal aorta for various aortic pathology.

Education

Residents on their first cardiac rotation will experience the full range of cases, which at larger institution may be reserved or considered "fellow"-level cases. As a safety-net institution, our patients are considered higher-risk when compared to those at like-volume programs. That dynamic contributes to the experiences of those who provide anesthesia care for these patients in the operating room. Along with the required months of cardiac anesthesia, residents are expected to learn and complete a senior rotation in transesophageal echocardiography. Beyond intraoperative echocardiography, there is a formal monthly "Echo Rounds" review lead by one of our cardiac anesthesiology faculty.
