VA Anesthesiology

The Atlanta VAMC is located at 1670 Clairmont Road. We provide care for approximately 5000 operating room cases per year encompassing all surgical specialties with the exceptions of obstetrics and pediatrics. 70% of our patients are ASA 3 or 4. Care is also provided for GI endoscopy, cardiology procedures (lariat procedures) and interventional radiology outside the operating room suite. A neurosurgical service is in development. The department is also currently developing a multidisciplinary chronic pain service. Residents typically rotate as an elective rotation during the CA-3 year.
